Lord we ask Your grace and mercy on those that find themselves in a situation where they are unable to get out of bed and function normally due to whatever reason. Father we pray You would be very gracious to them in their sickness and ask that they may come to know You in a real sense – that they would know Your presence with them, to uphold and sustain .
Give those that care for them the grace and patience to cope with whatever situation they meet without resentment or a careless attitude, but give all those that care for the sick and elderly a love for those that care for that comes only from You.
Sustain each one we pray on their sickbeds and if it is Your purpose for their lives we pray that they may be raised again into restored health and strength and should they find themselves in a situation where their illness is prolonged or even terminal, we pray that You would heal their inner soil and bind up any brokenness in their hearts.
Lord we know that in You we have life and life more abundantly and so we ask that if there are any for whom we are praying that have not accepted the Lord Jesus as their Saviour – that You would send a special someone to tell them the truth – that Jesus died on the cross to pay the price for their sins.. so that all who believe on His name might not perish but have everlasting live - and that He rose again the third day, conquering death and hell for ever so that we may live with Him eternally in bodies that are glorified and like unto His glorious body. Father look down we pray in grace and mercy on ALL who are permanently bedridden and draw each one into the loving arms of the Lord Jesus, in Whose name we pray,
