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 the glorious kingdom of Your dear Son – my Saviour Jesus Christ. 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,
