Oh Lord I am ill and feel frightened and alone as I have no one to care for me – I have no one who is really interested in me at all and I feel lost and alone and so vulnerable. And now Lord Jesus, I have come down with this sickness and I feel so ill – Lord, I ask You please to make me well again – and soon, and lift up my sagging spirit I pray.
I know Lord in my heart that I am not alone, because You are with me – which is the real reason that I am praying to You now, because You promised to be with me and never to leave me or forsake me – even when everyone else does. Be with me now I pray and reach out Your healing hand of blessing and touch me Lord, I pray. Please make me feel better – not only in my body but also in my life, I pray.
Thank You that I can call on You in times of trouble or illness or loneliness and know that You are always there to hear and answer - to heal and comfort and help. Lord, I pray that You would help me to really apply this truth in my life – not just when I am poorly, but every day, I pray,
