Prayer for a Healing Friend

Dear Lord,

We come before You today to lift up our dear friend who is in need of healing. We ask that You would touch them with Your healing hand and restore them to full health.

We know that You are the Great Physician and that no illness is too big for You to handle. We trust in Your love and Your power to heal.

We pray that You would give our friend the strength and courage they need to endure this difficult time, and that You would provide them with the medical help and support they need to make a full recovery.

We ask that You would bring peace and comfort to our friend and to all those who love them. May Your love and grace surround them, and may they feel Your presence with them always.

We pray all of this in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
