Prayer In A Time of Illness

Dear Father God, thank You for the many blessings that we receive from You daily and especially for the wonderful gift of salvation, which we have been given simply by trusting in Jesus as Saviour – thank You that He died to take the punishment I deserve for my sins, and that He rose again to break the power of sin and death in my life.. How I praise You and worship You for all Your many blessing.

Lord I thank You for my life and I know that we are wonderfully created and every part of our body is a miracle - but I come to You today as I am not at all well in my body and my health seems to be failing. I have always been fairly healthy Lord, for which I praise You but have come down recently with a number of unrelated ailments and Lord I feel so poorly and ask for Your healing touch on my life.

Be with me Lord, and with all that are facing similar problems in their lives. Lord it seems that so many people that I know has contracted some sort of health problem and I just ask You to visit each of us at this time of illness and stretch Your healing hand on each of our lives and restore us to good health, I pray.

Thank You that You are a God Who hears and answers prayers – in Jesus name I pray…

Amen
