Prayer of Healing for a Friend

Almighty God,

We come before You today with heavy hearts, lifting up our dear friend who is in need of healing. We acknowledge You as the Great Physician and place our trust in Your power to heal. We humbly ask You to touch our friend with Your healing hand and restore them to complete health.

We recognize that nothing is impossible for You, Lord. We ask that You remove any sickness or disease from our friend’s body and grant them the strength to fight against any illness they may be facing. We also pray for peace and comfort for them during this challenging time.

However, we also acknowledge Your sovereignty and Your goodness and understand that sometimes healing may not be Your will. We trust in Your plan and know that even if healing does not come in the way we expect, You are still working all things for the good of those who love You.

We implore You to be with our friend and their family during this trying time. We ask for Your grace, mercy, and love to surround them and bring them healing.

We give You thanks for Your faithfulness and the many ways in which You have already blessed our friend.

We pray all this in the powerful and holy name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
