Prayer for Healing the Sickness

Heavenly Father,

We come before You today with hearts full of faith, asking for Your healing hand to be upon our dear brother/sister who is sick. We know that You are the creator of all things and that You have the power to do immeasurably more than we could ask or imagine. We ask that You would pour out Your healing power on their body and that every cell and every organ would be restored to full health.

We pray that You would bring peace and comfort to their mind and spirit, as they navigate this difficult time. May they feel Your presence with them, and may they know that You are holding them in the palm of Your hand.

We thank You for the medical professionals who are working to care for our loved ones, and we ask that You would give them wisdom and skill as they treat this illness. We pray that through their efforts, and through Your healing power, our dear brother/sister will experience a full and complete recovery.

But even if their physical healing does not come in this life, we trust in Your loving plan for their lives and we know that You will never leave them or forsake them. Help us to trust in You and to find hope and strength in Your Word.

We pray for provision for all of their needs, both physical and emotional, and we ask that You would give strength and endurance to their loved ones, who are supporting them through this difficult time.

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