When a loved one is terribly sick, it affects the entire family. Everyone will be anxious and distressed. If the mood is dark and things seem hopeless, Christians ought to take this as an opportunity to lead the family toward God with a healing prayer for a loved one.
He is Jehovah Rapha – the God that heals. By His stripes, we are healed. With one word, He can heal any sickness. Whether the sickness lingers or it’s instantly healed, be in faith that the Lord will grant healing according to His perfect timing and will.
A sickness is both an opportunity for God to display His power and an opportunity for believers to exercise and strengthen their faith. There is no sickness that is beyond the Almighty to heal.
Let us approach God in full confidence that God makes miracles even up to this day. Let us pray.
Prayer To Heal A Loved One
God our Father in Heaven, we stand before You in prayer, humble before Your great presence. We pray for the sick in their families.
Lord Jesus, You said that whenever two or three are gathered in Your Name, there You will be. We humbly ask for Your presence beside us.
We know that the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective, yet we claim no righteousness of our own other than the righteousness of our Lord Jesus.
By the righteous blood of Christ that was spilled on the cross, we ask for the healing of their sick loved ones. We declare and know that no disease can stand against the power of God. With a single word, we know that You can heal the sick if it is Your will.
We pray, Lord, for Your loving mercy. Spare them the physical hardship and pain that their sickness brings. We don’t know, Lord, how long they’ve been suffering and bearing the pain, but You know more than we do. I know, Lord, that it’s not Your desire to inflict pain on those who call on Your name.
But if it is Your will for them to stand in faith and endure, sustain them, Lord, as they wait faithfully for the completion of Your plan. Reveal to them Your good, perfect and pleasing will. Embrace them with Your spirit of comfort and lift the veil in their minds.
Do not let their hearts falter and lose faith. More than the physical hardship, we pray that You will strengthen and sustain their hearts and minds. In the midst of physical, emotional, and financial suffering, provide them with everything that they need to keep the faith.
Guard them, Lord, from evil for the enemy lies in wait to sow lies in their spirits. Do not let them falter and fall to temptation. Do not let them lose heart. You said that anyone who rests in Your shadow You will surely save. Have mercy on them, Lord, and show them Your favor.
You are the great healer. We put our faith in Your awesome power and might. We thank You in advance for this answered prayer. In Jesus’ name, we pray. And God’s people said, “Amen!”.
