Prayer For Health
Loving Lord, I just want to lift up my dear friend to You, who has been such a comfort and strength to me for so many years, but who has at last been admitted to a hospice where she is to pass her final few weeks of life in dignity and respect, as her life drains from her. Lord, I know that I am going to miss her so much.
Be with her Lord, every moment of the day and night. Thank You Father, that she is to be looked after in such a caring and understanding environment. Be with the staff who are to attend her as her life flows from her and Lord, I pray that she would be very aware of Your very presence with her, every moment of the day.
Lord, I know that she is ready and longing to meet You face to face, and I ask that You would keep her free from the pain and suffering that so often stalks the advancement of death. But praise God that the grave has lost its terrible sting and death has lost its victory, through the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Praise Your holy name!
Lord, I know that I am going to miss my dear friend, but my sadness has such a wonderful tinge of hope and joy, for I know that soon we will all be together in Your company, where we will be free from all sickness and sadness, and You will wipe away every tear from our eyes. Thank You Lord, in Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, I seem to have been hit with a number of ailments all at the same time, and the doctors do not seem to know why this has happened, or how to treat me. Lord, You know exactly what is wrong with my body, and I ask that You would direct me toward the right treatment, not just to mask the conditions that have invaded my body, but to search out the root of the problem, and enable it to be cured.
Lord, I know that we are fearfully and wonderfully made, and that You even know the number of hairs on my head. You knew me before I was born and scheduled every day of my life, so this illness is nothing unexpected to You. Heal me Lord I pray, in whatever way seems best to You.
Lord, show me what I ought to do, I pray. If I need to change my eating habits, eliminate something from my diet or do something I have not thought about, I ask that You would direct me, or prompt someone else give me some advice.
Lord, I wait on You and pray that in Your time and in Your way, You will not only restore my body to full health and strength, but that You would give me Your peace and serenity in my heart, knowing that in all things, I am safe in the arms of my Saviour, in Whose name I pray,
Lord of Heaven, I rest underneath your mighty wings of love. I dwell within your gentle heart. I know there is healing in your touch. Through the sufferings of Christ I can ask for restoration And trust in your goodness. You are my Lord, my Saviour, My healer and my friend. I dwell within your gentle embrace. Amen.
Almighty God and heavenly Father, we give thee humble thanks because thou hast been graciously pleased to deliver from his sickness thy servant N., in whose behalf we bless and praise thy Name. Grant, O gracious Father, that he, through thy help, may live in this world according to thy will, and also be partaker of everlasting glory in the life to come; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Lord, You invite all who are burdened to come to You. Allow Your healing hand to heal me. Touch my soul with Your compassion for others. Touch my heart with Your courage and infinite love for all. Touch my mind with Your wisdom, that my mouth may always proclaim Your praise. Teach me to reach out to You in my need, and help me to lead others to You by my example. Most loving Heart of Jesus, bring me health in body and spirit that I may serve You with all my strength. Touch gently this life which You have created, now and forever. Amen.
Lord, today I offer You my mind May I seek the mind of Christ in all things Freed from anxiety and fear Filled with wholeness and wellness Today I offer You my spirit In You I have been born again Your Spirit dwells deeply within me My Spirit is alive in You Freed from depressive thoughts and critical thinking Today I offer You my body May it be a temple dedicated to You O Lord A place for You to live and reign May I be mindful of what I eat and drink May I be watchful of my sleep and rest Lord, right now I offer you my whole being I present my mind, spirit and body to You Come and take me as a living sacrifice This day and everyday May I ever glorify and worship You Amen.
Praise You for this, and every day that we get to wake up this side of heaven. Each day is laced with purpose, and we ask for Your wisdom and guidance through every one. Help us to live each day well, and for Your glory, from start to finish.
Thank You for Your Word, which breathes life into our tired souls and minds. You promise to meet us there, in study and prayer. Thank You for the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross, paying with His life for our ease of access to our Heavenly Father through prayer and Scripture. Each biblical story and truth weave in and out our lives in Your perfect timing.
Father, You remind us throughout Scripture that You are faithful to Your people. Jeremiah 33:6 says, Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security. So often, as in the Old Testament, we rebel, neglect to care for ourselves as You do, and end up tired and sick. But Father You are faithful to enwrap us in Your healing love each time we turn back to You.
Forgive us for neglecting to care for the life You have entrusted us with. The life that You have purposed specifically to do more than we can ask for or imagine. When we go our own way, we wear ourselves down, physically and mentally. Other times, we train physically but neglect our psyche. We often neglect our spiritual life.
Father, strengthen us to hold captive the joy You bless our lives with daily. Help us to walk freely in Your love. For as Paul reminds us in 1 Timothy 4:8 (VOICE), Although training your body has certain payoffs, godliness benefits all things--holding promise for life here and now and promise for the life that is coming. Send us more of Your Holy Spirit, to help us focus on Your Word daily. Give us hearts like Jesus.
Give us the wisdom to seek You first each day, before each decision. It's often the little thoughts and daily decisions that lead us into a sudden spiral of bad health. Enlighten us and guide us through Your Word. Let our hearts burn for more of You each day.
Help us endure the pain of chronic conditions, some of which will not find healing in this broken and sinful world. We know that You work all things for good, but in those moments of chronic pain and suffering, it can be impossible to understand Your perfect and just hand in it all.
In Jesus' Name, Amen.
May the Lord bless and keep all who are unwell today. May the Lord let His face shine upon all who are struggling with ill heath and sickness of body, mind or spirit, and may the Lord lift up the shining light of His lovely face on all who are struggling today, with various disease, disorders and health problems.
May He rise up with healing on His wings and look with deep compassion and mercy on all who need His strength today. May He pour into all their hearts the peace and love that only comes from the Father, through the person of the Lord Jesus Christ, in Whose name we pray,
