God heals
by: Alison

God hears your prayers! God is our healer, and wants to heal all emotional and physical hurts and scars in our life. He cares about you deeply and therefore, cares about the things you care about. I'm sorry this is a source of suffering for you. Keep close to Christ - the one who identifies with us in our suffering. and remember God can heal ANY hurt or scar, and I will be praying for your miracle too!

Lord, thank you for healing us physically and emotionally, completely. in Jesus' name, Amen.

He was wounded and by His stripes - He did it for you Vanessa!

Hi Vanessa, loved Alison's word of encouragement and also wanted to be another witness about the healing power of a loving God.
Precious, the Bible is full of accounts of God mainifesting healing. To build your faith, you might want to do a study of them for It tells
faith comes by the hearing of His Word" (paraphrased).
Be strong in this TRUTH, "Before the foundation of the world, God knew you, chose you and calls you His own". As His child Vanessa, because you have accepted Jesus Christ as LORD and Savior, you have some awesome covenant benefits. What He did on that Cross paid the way for you to be healed. He was wounded, bruised, suffered, bled and died - His Blood was shed for you. To redeem, restore, deliver and heal you. He rose from that grave triumphant and now sits before His Father (and your Father)praying for your complete healing. It's not religious jargon precious, these words are true. So yes it's okay to pray for your healing and yes dear heart it's okay to expect it! Keep studying to grow in your knowledge of His great love and care of you. He caused the lame to walk, the blind to see, a man's leprous skin became like that of a child - He certainly can heal your scars! What an awesome God He is! (By the way precious, I was once covered with scars all over my body, face and neck brought on by profound excema/psoriasis combination - the scars are now gone along with the disease. Why? Cause He was wounded!
Blessings to you precious, keep us posted!

I prayed for many years. God never heal my scars so I stopped believing in God. I prayed and things got much worse.

by: Alison

To the anonymous commenter:

God has a deep love for you, I just prayed to the Father on your behalf.

I feel him saying that your trust was / is so precious to Him.

God is making ALL things new. I know it can be scary, even frustrating to trust in Him without results, even for many years. You are so precious to Him and is is waiting, even still today in anticipation for you to return and place your trust in back in Him. Your trust, regardless of your natural circumstance, is SO precious to Him. I want you to know that :)

Please read Hebrews Chapter 11. Faith is not based on what is seen.

Your story touched me...

I prayed for you, and believe that God will bring people in your life who will overlook the scars. They will see you for the beautiful healed person you are, just as God sees you. And as for the airline job, you should still go for it! With God, ALL things are possible.

I have suttle burs scars and hypper pigmentation and alopecia
by: Anonymous

Last year I was 29 and I looked 25 this year I´m 30 and I look 35 My face was clean and my hair was full . But because I mistreated my wife with harsh words commited adultery in my mind with another woman and convinced her that I wanted to leave her and take our daughter away from her, she decided to start putting something on my face. Whatever it is it burned my skin and made scars and hair fall off. I feel like I want to die. I have always been insecure about my apearance and now I cry everyday. I also consulted witches before this happened so I want to know if he can stop being so angry at me because I LOVE HIM. I´m an adventist and my church leader or high priest thinks that we have to suffer! I DISAGREE!! We have to be forgiven and healed for our faith recieve holy spirit and heal others.

Want to tell my story
by: Miranda

You know, guys. All these stories are so familiar to me. I have a little but really visible scar on my nose. I got it 3 years ago. I believe in God as in my Father and Savior and I go to the church since I was 6 years old. And before this moment(like few days ago) I just tried some creams and something like that. But few days ago God spoke to me and He said that I have start to pray about healing of my scar. And really, I have thought about prayer about it very often but...I don't know. Just want to let you all know that I'm praying about healing and I don't know why but I'm pretty sur God will help me, He will heal me. And so He will do for you( author of article and others). He talked to me and I have a big hope. So keep praying! Jesus will help. And 'With God all things are possible!'Matthew19:26. In Jesus' Name. Amen, guys.

I just want to thank everyone on this article for the word of encouragement.

Stretch Marks
by: Mandy

I am covered in large stretch marks. I'm unmarried and have never had children. The scars (some faded, some still purple) are from extreme and sudden weight gain. I'm ashamed and feel ugly because of it and avoid wearing t-shirts and shorts (forget a bathing suit) so as not to gross people out.
I avoid the mirror in the morning so I can make it through the day without an episode. But I still consistently break down over it.
My relationship with God has greatly suffered. I refuse to put this issue into His hands because I believe He will deliver me simply on an emotional/spiritual level...and that's simply not enough for me. I don't see that as love. I feel like if God loved me He would take away the scars.
This biggest problem is I have no specific scriptures to stand on so I don't know what to have faith in. Because of what Jesus did on the cross, I know we all have healing and prosperity. But scars don't need to be healed. They are reminders of someting being healed and the last thing I want is to be reminded everyday of just how fat I was.
I have heard all types of advice and all are conflicting with one another.

Any scriptural revelation on this issue would be appreciated.

To Mandy,

sweet girl.
its ok to ask God to heal stretch marks.
its more than ok.

For a long time I have sought the Lord on revalation of true beauty. I have been covered in stretch marks since my early teen years. I've never been overweight, but I had carried so much shame & self hate because of them. I began praying for God to take them away since I was 15 (im now 21).
They never have. I just mannaged to go through life, avoiding many things I would have loved to do; the beach, dance, just fun in general.
Until recently, I just made do with praying and hoping they would go away. However, I was sent into an absolute panic when I got engaged a month ago.
The thought of the man I love seeing those things on me! uggg!!! I didn't realize how much of a cage I had allowed those stretch marks to put me in. I was considering calling off the marriage just so that I didn't have to share this part of me that I was so ashaimed of.
Thats when I had decided I had had enough. What a load of crap. I knew that the Lord was more committed to my heart being free than my skin, yet I also know that he is longing to heal!
I'm sure you see that too.
They don't contradict themselves, they go hand in hand.
I had decided to let him heal my heart of its "stretch marks". Before I had been unwilling to make this compramise. It was either my skin gets healed or I would not walk down that isle. I wouldn't humiliate myself like that.
But I decided one night to give it up. All of it. Let him heal my heart, even if the scaring remained, I would not live in a prison of fear.
and you know what happened, my heart is free.
i have stretch marks!!!
and im free!!!
do i want them, no. do they bother me, nope. (belive me, you would have never heard me say that before.)
I still pray for them to be gone. And I say in faith that they will be. But regardless, I will walk down that isle on my wedding day, and those scars will be the last thing on my mind.

open your heart for God to heal first. I believe more than ever that my stretch marks will go away, yet i have never cared about them less.
He paid the price for freedom. In your heart & on your skin. You are you loved.

by: kevin

i have a raised(hypertrophic) scar on my face that has caused much pain in my life. It has ruined my life. Theres days when I just want to kill myself im so sick of my problems and scar. I am a christian and believer in jesus as my lord and savior. I keep praying to God to help me, to heal the scar, to change my life. So far nothing has changed. Im running on fumes in my life, im ready to die to be honest. Please pray for me if you could, I would appreciate it greatly.

God Bless.

To Kevin
by: Stephen

Kevin, I know how distressing scars are. I felt the same way as you too, and secretly hope (or pray) that God would take me away to heaven during my sleep. It caused me social anxiety. It caused me depression. It caused my decreasing social life. My mood is affected whenever I think about my scars. I just want you to know that you're not alone in such thoughts and distress.

Well, I guess the only positive thing out of all these is that I hang on to God tighter, because I really have no other alternative! I've tried lasers and it didn't work. And then I read that God is the master of all physicians, and He told us to ASK and NOT be anxious. I'm trying to do these 2...that is to ASK and NOT be anxious by lifting my worries to Him, and believing He will heal me in His timing. Is that faith, or obedience? I don't know...there're times when I prayed and it got worse, and I lose heart/faith (and hope). Again, what can I do, except to try again to ask and pray.

Why can't I be like any other normal person with normal skin without scars or holes? I don't know. I am still learning how to cope with it (I've been suffering in silence for past 20 years. I'm 35). May God help me (us).

Please pray for me
by: Anonymous

I am a 27 year old christian girl. When I was 19 I lost my virginity under pressure and had a crises concealed pregnancy. I have had stretch marks ever since and I am praying that God will heal me and take them away because they are to me the product of a nightmare. ever reminding me of it. It stops me wanting to go out with men. Please pray for me. I am sure that if others pray for me i will be cured! I'll pray for you in return.

Scars and the beauty of Jesus
by: Alina

Dear all,

I want you to know that you have all inspired me deeply to pray to Jesus for my imperfections--I have a dog bite scar on my nose that everyone told me would not go away, and very bad acne skin.

I will ask the Lord over and over again in faith for him to provide complete healing for my face!

Thank you Jesus!

All skin conditions
by: Anonymous

I have had a relationship with God since I was practically able to talk. My roots are veryyyyy deep with Him and I love Him so much. But I have a request for Him to heal my scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, pimples, and more stuff. But the thing is, I feel like He won't heal me because it's not something important or because it wouldn't be good for me. I used to have perfect skin and then I started to get all this stuff and it depressed me because I don't deserve ANY of this. I really want God to heal everything and to do a miracle. I told God that if He does heal me, I will make sure I won't show my body inappropriately or flaunt it or anything just cause I have perfect skin. I told Him I will have self respect and to be a lady and that I will take care of my body (I already am by working out everyday). I just want God to tell me if he's going to heal me or something I really want Him to talk to me about this. Please pray for me. Thank you for your prayers in advance and Godbless you all.

Wow im so encouraged reading these replies. particularly the one who mentioned marriage kept her from wanting to commit. I know how you felt. This is what I am going through now. I have been praying to God to help me afford a corrective surgery to get rid of my unsightly hip stretch marks and the miles of cellulite that i have on my thighs. From the neck up I am beautiful but below that I see imperfections. I want to get free from this pain too, i have been carrying this shame for years. I remember thinking to myself at least when i die and go to heaven at least i wont have stretch marks. I envision a more beautiful version of myself in heaven restored from all of the damage. I want to challenge us all to try to begin the process of coping what the reality is and believing God for whatever his plan is for our recovery whatever that is. Its different for everyone. God Bless each and every single one of you.
