Prayer for Healing of Friend

Dear Lord,

I lift up my dear friend to You today and ask for Your healing hand to be upon them. I know that You are the great physician and that nothing is impossible for You. I believe that You can bring complete healing to their mind, body, and spirit.

Even if healing doesn’t come in the way that we expect, I pray that You would give my friend and their loved ones the strength and grace to trust in Your plan and to find peace and comfort in You. I pray that You would use this situation to draw them closer to You and to bring them into a deeper relationship with You.

I pray that Your will be done in my friend’s life, and that whatever the outcome, Your perfect plan for their healing would be accomplished.

Please be with the doctors and medical staff who are treating them. Give them wisdom and skill as they seek to bring healing.

I trust in You, Lord, and know that You are good. I give You all the praise and honor for the healing that You will bring, whether it be in this life or the next.

I pray all of this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Suggested Bible Readings

James 5:14-16 ESV

Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
