Healing Prayer for the Sick

Dear Heavenly Father,

We come before You today with a heavy heart, as we lift up our beloved [friend/family member] who is sick. Lord, we know that You are the Great Healer and that nothing is impossible for You. We trust in Your unfailing love and Your sovereign plan for our lives.

We ask that You would touch [friend/family member] with Your healing hand and restore health to their body. We pray that You would bring comfort to their mind and spirit and give them strength to endure this difficult time. May they feel Your loving presence surrounding them and know that they are not alone.

We also pray for the doctors and nurses who are caring for our loved one. Lord, we ask that You would give them wisdom and skill as they work to diagnose and treat [friend/family member]’s illness. We pray that You would guide them in making the best decisions for [friend/family member]’s health and well-being.

Lord, we know that You are able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine. We trust in Your goodness and Your faithfulness and we pray that You would work a miracle in [friend/family member]’s life.

All glory and honor to You, Lord. We pray all of this in the powerful and mighty name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Healer. Amen.
