Being sick is one of the most testing times for both yourself and for your connection with God. And the state, as it differs in degree from one individual to the other is usually troubling.
Nonetheless, what if we told you that, whether small, medium, and even large, God is essentially the key to all of our problems. We are not sugar-coating His position in our lives simply because, generations have sowed in His holy abode, and protection He has given us, His sons and daughters.
Therefore, recognition of His power and consequentially the fact that your state of weakness should be minor to you is one relief that you deserve to know and acknowledge.
“Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise” – Jeremiah’s 17:14

A Prayer for Healing Sick Family or Friends
Lord Jesus, thank you that you love [name of person who needs healing]. I know that you hate what their illness is doing to them/me. I ask, in the name of Jesus, that you would heal this disease, that you would have compassion and bring healing from all sickness.
Your word says in Psalm 107:19-20 that when we call out to you the Eternal one you will give the order, heal and rescue us from certain death. In the Bible, I have read of miraculous healing and I believe that you still heal the same way today. I believe that there is no illness you cannot heal after all the bible tells of you raising people from the dead so I ask for your healing in this situation.
I also know from my experience of life on earth that not everyone is healed if that happens here than keep my heart soft towards you, help me to understand your plan and help me to be excited about heaven.
Lord Jesus, thank you that our hope for healing is in you. If there are doctors or treatments that you would want to use to heal this disease I pray that you would guide [name of person who needs healing] to them. I ask for wisdom and discernment about which treatments to pursue.
God, I thank you that [name of person who needs healing] belongs to you and that you are in control of everything that happens from our first breath to our last sigh.
May this prayer for sick guide your thoughts and communication with the Lord! Remember that the Holy Spirit interceeds for us when we do not know what to say. God knows your heart!
