We come to You today in need of Your healing and strength. We ask that You would touch those who are struggling with illness and give them the comfort and peace that only comes from You. We believe in Your power to heal and restore, and we trust in Your goodness and faithfulness. Even if healing isn’t Your will, we trust in Your greater plan and Your goodness.
We also ask that You would give strength to those who are facing difficult situations and challenges. We know that You are with them and that You will give them the grace and wisdom they need to persevere. We ask that You would be a shield and a fortress for them in times of trouble and that You would give them hope and a sense of Your presence in their lives.
We ask that You would provide for all their needs, both physical and financial. We trust that You will meet their every need according to Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
We also ask that You would be with those who care for the sick and that You would give them wisdom, compassion, and energy. We pray that You would be with the researchers and doctors working to find new treatments and cures for illnesses and that You would guide them in their work.
In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, we pray. Amen.
