Growing up in a Christian family made me learn at a young age what verses to read when I am feeling unwell. My father would always read a verse from the book of Psalms whenever anyone had a headache or felt unwell, and I picked that up; to date, I read Psalms whenever I have a headache.
With my experience and knowledge, it was easy for me to answer my students who wanted verses from the book of Psalms to read for headaches, especially during exams.
I decided to write an article on this topic to read for headaches for everyone else.
5 Psalms to read for headache
“Record my misery; list my tears on your scroll — are they not in your record?”
In this verse, David asks God to record his misery and tears. In the same way, you can read this Psalms as a prayer that God may heal you from your misery—the headache.
“Lord, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me! Many are saying of me, ‘God will not deliver him.'”
David tells God that many people say God will not deliver him. However, he believes in God, and He knows God will deliver him, and he asks him to strike all his enemies.
Therefore, you can read this verse to remind yourself that God is your shield and ask him to deliver you from the headache.
“Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this.”
This verse is about committing to God, and he will do it for you. You can read this verse to serve as a reminder that you need to commit your ways to him, and he will heal you.
“Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.”
This verse tells believers to cast their burdens on God, and he will sustain them. The verse assures all believers that God will never allow them to be shaken.
Therefore, you can read this verse because it reminds you to cast your burden on God, and he will heal you.
“Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases.”
David first asks his soul to praise God and remember all that God does, including forgiving his sins. He also adds that God heals diseases.
Therefore, you can read this verse to remind your soul that God heals all diseases, including headaches.
