I just put together a booklet for a friend I ministered to this week, praying for healing from mental and spiritual afflictions.
This week, I heard the testimony of a guy whose faith was strengthened by hearing the word of God. I felt that I should collate some scriptures for you to repeat over regularly, which will build your faith and thus assist in your healing and growth in the Lord. I recommend reading these out loud, as God’s word is particularly effective when heard. I pray that God would bless these words to your spirit.
In compiling these scriptures, this will be most useful for me also, to build my faith. God is good. We’re all on this journey together. Thank you for allowing me to minister to you and bearing with my inadequacies in this area.
I’ve also compiled this into a video so you can just relax and listen to it.

Isaiah 33:2 Lord, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress.

Psalms 30:2 Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me.
Psalms 34:17-22 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all; he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken. Evil will slay the wicked; the enemies of the righteous will be condemned. The Lord will rescue his servants; no one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.

He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

When He had come to the other side, to the country of the Gergesenes, there met
Him two demon-possessed men, coming out of the tombs, exceedingly fierce, so
that no one could pass that way. 29And suddenly they cried out,
saying, “What have we to do with You, Jesus, You Son of God? Have You come here
to torment us before the time?”
30Now a good way off from them there was a herd of many pigs feeding. 31So the demons begged Him, saying, “If You cast us out, permit us to go away into the herd of pigs.”
32And He said to them, “Go.” So, when they had come out, they went into the herd of pigs. And suddenly the whole herd of pigs ran violently down the steep place into the sea and perished in the water.
Matthew 12:43 When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. 44Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. 45Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. That’s what it will be like with this wicked generation.

Luke 4:31 Then
he went down to Capernaum, a town in Galilee, and on the sabbath he taught the
people. 32They were amazed at his teaching, because his words
had authority. 33In the synagogue there was a man possessed by
a demon, an impure spirit. He cried out at the top of his voice, 34“Go
away! What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us?
I know who you are—the Holy One of God!” 35“Be quiet!” Jesus
said sternly. “Come out of him!” Then the demon threw the man down before them
all and came out without injuring him. 36All the people were
amazed and said to each other, “What words these are! With authority and power,
he gives orders to impure spirits and they come out!” 37And the
news about him spread throughout the surrounding area.
38Jesus left the synagogue and went to the home of Simon. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever, and they asked Jesus to help her. 39So he bent over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. She got up at once and began to wait on them.
40At sunset, the people brought to Jesus all who had various kinds of sickness, and laying his hands on each one, he healed them. 41Moreover, demons came out of many people, shouting, “You are the Son of God!” But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew he was the Messiah.

And when He came to the disciples, He saw a great multitude around them, and
scribes disputing with them. 15Immediately, when they saw Him, all
the people were greatly amazed, and running to Him, greeted Him. 16And
He asked the scribes, “What are you discussing with them?”
17Then one of the crowd answered and said, “Teacher, I brought You my son, who has a mute spirit. 18And wherever it seizes him, it throws him down; he foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth, and becomes rigid. So, I spoke to Your disciples, that they should cast it out, but they could not.”
19He answered him and said, “O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him to Me.” 20Then they brought him to Him. And when he saw Him, immediately the spirit convulsed him, and he fell on the ground and wallowed, foaming at the mouth.
21So He asked his father, “How long has this been happening to him?”
And he said, “From childhood. 22And often he has thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. But if You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.”
23Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
24Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”
25When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it: “Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!” 26Then the spirit cried out, convulsed him greatly, and came out of him. And he became as one dead, so that many said, “He is dead.” 27But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose.
28And when He had come into the house, His disciples asked Him privately, “Why could we not cast it out?”
29So He said to them, “This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and fasting.”
Most surely, I tell you, he who believes in Me, will also do the things that I
do; and he will do even greater works than these, because I go to My
Father. 13And whatever you ask in My name, I will do it, that
the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If
you ask anything in My name, I will do it.
15If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may stay with you forever – 17the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, since He dwells with you and will be in you. 18I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.
19A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also. 20At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. 21He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
I pray God would richly bless you as you meditate on his words.
