Prayer for Healing

Dear God,

I come before You today with a heavy heart, asking for Your healing touch. I know that You are the Great Physician and that nothing is impossible for You. I believe in Your power to restore health and strength, but I also trust in Your sovereign plan and Your perfect timing.

I ask that You would bring healing to my body and strength to my mind and spirit. I pray for the courage to face each day with hope and trust in Your love, even if You do not choose to heal me in the way that I desire.

Please be with me in my suffering and give me peace and comfort. I also pray for those who are caring for the sick, that You would give them wisdom and compassion as they minister to the needs of others.

I thank You for the promise of Your loving presence with me always, and I trust in Your goodness and mercy.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
