Short Prayer for Healing and Recovery

Dear Lord,

We lift up to You our friend who is in need of healing and recovery. We ask that You would touch their body with Your healing power, and restore them to full health. We trust in Your goodness and faithfulness, and believe that nothing is impossible for You.

We ask that You would also bring peace and comfort to their mind and spirit during this difficult time. We pray that You would be glorified in their healing, and that they would see You as their loving and faithful Healer.

In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
