Prayer for John 11 ►
Dear God, You are the giver of life and health and You are the healer of the sick and the suffering – we pray for a dear friend who is in distress with ill-health today and pray that You would help them to come to a full recovery and restore them to wholeness, health and strength.
Lord I do ask that You would meet my friend at their point of need – not only in their physical suffering but also in their spiritual sickness. Lord my dear friend not only needs recovery of their physical health but recovery of their spiritual lack and the emotional pain - that seems to be making their physical problem so much worse.
Administer all Your gifts of health and healing for body and mind I pray and multiply Your blessings and grace towards them so that they may be fully restored and come to a deeper knowledge and understanding of You, in Jesus name,
“Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.”

Dear God, I just want to bring my precious Grandma to You as she is quite poorly and I just ask Lord that You would touch her with Your healing hands and restore her to full health and strength – but oh Lord I also know that she is getting older and her health has been deteriorating quite rapidly over the past few months.
Father I know that our times are in Your hands and for everything there is a season and I know Lord that life does not continue indefinitely, nevertheless I do pray that she may be restored to good health.
Be with her Lord in her sickness and may she feel Your presence with her. Provide for all her needs I pray and I ask Lord that the doctors may identify the right medicines to help speed her recovery. Keep her close to You loving arms and may she find her rest in You especially during this period of sickness. I ask this in Jesus name.
“When Jesus heard that
, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.”

Loving Lord I am filled with grief and sadness at the loss of my precious loved one – and yet that pain is tinged with gold, knowing that they trusted you as their Saviour and that they are now in Your presence.
I know that I am going to miss this precious one, who has been my strength and my joy for so long, and thank You for the precious times we had together.
Often Lord I expect my dear one to just be there, or walk through the door - and then remember that they have gone home to be with You. At times this is quite hard and yet I know that I must not grieve as those that have not hope in Jesus – but rejoice knowing that the day is coming when we will be together with You and You will wipe away all tears from our eyes - but at the moment my loss is like an open wound – and I pray that You will heal my brokenness and the loneliness I feel… and draw me every closer into Your arms of love my Lord and my God.
Thank You for all You are to me and may I rest in You in Jesus name,
“And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?”
