A Prayer for Healing

Dear God,

We come before You today with hearts full of pain and sorrow, asking for Your healing and restoration. We know that You are the Great Physician and that nothing is impossible for You.

We trust in Your loving care and Your faithfulness to Your children. We ask that You would touch the sick and bring them complete healing and wholeness. We pray that You would give them strength and courage to face their challenges, and that You would surround them with Your loving presence.

We also pray for all those who are caring for the sick, that You would give them wisdom and compassion as they minister to the needs of others.

We believe in the power of Your Word and the authority of Your name. We ask that You would bring complete healing and restoration to all those in need, according to Your perfect will.

We give You all the praise and all the glory, for You are worthy of our worship and adoration.

All of this we pray in the name of Jesus, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
