Dear heavenly Father, I praise and thank You for Your never-failing love towards me – even when I was lost in sin and without hope in the world You looked down and gently called me to be Your child – even though I was rebellious and restless.
Lord You know that partly due to not caring for myself and partly for no other reason that we live in a fallen world I am suffering a debilitating sickness and ask that You would graciously look down on me and pick me up again and heal me in body as well as in spirit, as You did once before.
Thank You for dying for me to pay the price for my sin and thank You that You were wounded for my transgression and bruised for my iniquity – and that by Your stripes I am healed. Lord, I know that this body of mine is only going to deteriorate more and more as I get older, but I do pray that in Your grace and mercy You would set me free from the unpleasant sickness and pain that I am going through at the moment, and give me relief and healing.
Lord I do pray that You would set me free from this debilitating sickness that I am going through – nevertheless I also thank You that in all things Your grace is sufficient for You have proved this to be the case time and time again in the past. Thank You that You are a faithful God in all things and I ask that my life, in sickness and in health - be a life that glorifies You.
Keep me I pray from grumbling, when I have received such an overabundance of Your mercies, which are new every morning - knowing that our life here is but for a fleeting moment, in the economy of eternity… knowing that You have given me eternal life, for which I praise and thank You in Jesus name,
