Prayer for Healing of the Sick

Dear Lord,

We come before You today with a heavy heart, asking for Your healing hand to be placed upon our loved one who is sick. We know that You are the Great Healer and nothing is impossible for You. We trust in Your unfailing love and Your power to work miracles.

We ask that You would restore strength to their body, and bring comfort to their mind and spirit. May they experience Your peace and joy in the midst of their trial.

We pray for their complete healing, and we also ask that You would use this experience to draw them closer to You and to strengthen their faith.

We thank You for the gift of healing and we pray that Your will be done in this situation.

We pray all of this in Jesus’ precious name, amen.
