For The Joy Of The Lord During Sickness

Precious Lord Jesus, I thank You that You are my Saviour and that You have redeemed me from the kingdom of darkness into Your glorious kingdom of Light. Lord, I know that Your Word tells us that the joy of the Lord is our strength and that a joyful heart is a good and healing medicine. Lord, I pray that in Your strength, I may maintain a heart that is brimming with Your joy and one that rejoices in the God of my Salvation day by day, knowing that a broken spirit ‘dries up the bones’.

Lord, I know that You are a miracle working God, and that the greatest miracle of all that You have wrought in me, is my great salvation in Jesus Christ, Who died for me so that I might be forgiven of my sins and have everlasting life, but I also ask that You send Your mighty healing power into my body, during the time of illness that I am currently going through.

Father I pray that You would touch every organ and ligament of my body, every joint and cell and restore me to full health and strength, but I also pray that during my sickness You would touch my heart and fill it with Your love, Your grace and Your joy, for in You is the fullness of joy. Lord, You alone can flood a sick body with healing and You alone can overflow a heart with joy and peace, and so I rest my soul in You, and thank You for all the healing of body and soul that I know You are working within me. In Jesus' name I pray,
