Prayer for the Healing of the Sick

Heavenly Father,

We come to You today with a heavy heart, as we lift up those who are suffering with sickness. We ask that You would surround them with Your healing power, and bring Your peace and comfort to them in their time of need.

We know that nothing is impossible for You, and we trust in Your ability to heal and restore them to full health. But if healing doesn’t come in this life, we know that You have a greater plan and promise of eternal healing in heaven.

We also ask for Your provision and care for those who are struggling financially due to their sickness and ask that You bless them with all they need to meet their physical and financial needs.

We ask that You would give wisdom to the doctors and medical professionals treating them, and that You would guide them in their treatments.

We also ask for Your grace and strength for those who are caring for the sick, that they would be able to serve with love and compassion.

In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

    and healing to all their flesh.
