O God I have a dear friend who is very ill and I feel so helpless. Father – we are fearfully and wonderfully made, for You formed each of us in our mother’s womb and fashioned each of our bodies and You know where this particular problem lies.
Father I know that there is nothing in my friend’s body that You do not know about and nothing that is beyond Your ability to heal – and so I lift up this dear one to You – for You know the source of the pain and Your healing touch still has its ancient power. I pray that You will heal this child of Yours and raise them back to full health and strength – and we will give You all the praise and all the glory.
Please give me words of comfort and encouragement as I seek to advise them in difficult days that lie ahead. I also ask that You provide for all their needs, according to Your loving-kindness.
This I ask in Jesus name.
