Prayer For A Sick Friend

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.  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,
