Healing Prayer to a Friend

Heavenly Father,

We come before You today on behalf of our dear friend. We lift them up to You, asking that You would heal their body, mind, and spirit. We ask that You would restore them to full health and wholeness.

We trust in Your love and power to heal. However, we also trust in Your will and plan for our friend’s life. If healing does not come, we trust that You are still good and that You are still working all things for the good of those who love You.

We ask that You would reveal Yourself to our friend in a powerful way. We pray that they would experience Your love and presence in a new and deeper way. We ask that Your grace would be sufficient for them and that Your peace would guard their hearts and minds.

We also ask for provision for our friend and their family during this difficult time. We pray that You would meet all of their needs, both physically and financially. We ask for wisdom for the doctors and nurses treating our friend, so that they would have the knowledge and skill to provide the best care possible.

We thank You for Your healing power and we praise You for Your goodness and Your faithfulness. We give You all the glory and honor, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
