Healing Prayer for a Friend

Dear Lord,

I come before You today to ask for Your healing hand to be upon my friend. I believe in Your power to heal and to make whole, and I pray that You would touch my friend’s body, mind, and spirit with Your healing love.

I ask that You would give my friend strength and courage as he goes through this difficult time. May he trust in Your goodness and faithfulness, and may he find peace and comfort in Your presence.

I pray that You would restore my friend’s health and vitality, and that You would use this situation to bring him closer to You. May he experience Your love and grace in a deep and personal way, and may he be a witness to Your healing power in his own life and to those around him.

I pray all of this in the powerful and loving name of Jesus. Amen.
