Prayer of Healing for the Sick

Heavenly Father,

We come before You today with a heavy heart. Our loved one is suffering from illness. We trust in Your loving kindness and tender mercies. You, O Lord, are the Great Physician. We ask that You would heal this sickness if it is Your will. Restore our loved one to full health.

If healing is not Your will, we trust that You have a greater plan and purpose for this situation. Give us the strength and grace to accept it. We also ask for Your provision for all the needs that come along with this illness: physical, emotional, and financial.

We believe that nothing is impossible for You, and we put our faith and trust in You. Give our loved one the strength and courage to endure this trial, and surround them with Your peace. We also ask that You would give wisdom and guidance to the doctors and medical professionals treating our loved one. May they have the knowledge and skills needed to make the right decisions for their care.

We lift this prayer up to You in the name of Jesus, who bore our infirmities and carried our sorrows. Amen.
