Prayer for the Sick

Dear Lord,

We come before You today with a heavy heart, as one of our own is struggling with illness. We know that You are the Great Healer, and we trust in Your power to restore health and strength.

We pray for Your healing touch to be upon him. We ask that You would grant him relief from his pain and suffering, and that You would give him the energy and vitality he needs to fight this illness. We pray that You would provide him with the medical care he needs, and that You would use the hands and hearts of the medical professionals to bring about a full recovery.

We pray that You would give him and his loved ones the comfort and peace that only You can provide. We ask that You would wrap him in Your loving arms and fill him with hope and joy in the midst of this difficult trial.

We trust in Your goodness and faithfulness, Lord, and we believe that You are able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.

We give You all the glory and honor, now and forever.

In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
