Are you suffering from illness right now? Do you have loved ones in the hospital because of sickness right now? God is with you and He has a plan for us all. This plan also involves us praying to Him in times of need. Here are 6 prayers you can pray for the sick.

It Came Out Of Nowhere

Father in Heaven,
You know the news I just received, for You know everything. Father, be with my dear brother in Christ. He just had a seizure and is on the way to the hospital. Only You know what is going on right now, Lord, and I pray that my friend may be healed of whatever is going on. Lord, I pray that this will be the only seizure he will have. Father, be with his wife and children. I know they are scared right now. Give them peace through this, Lord. You are the Great Physician, and I know Your hand is in this. I love You! Amen

Prayers for The Sick

It is so difficult to see a child sick. Take it to God in prayer.

Way Too Young

O Lord,
My baby boy is only 2. He has been diagnosed with cancer. Father, I don’t know how to handle this and this is more than I can handle. Father, I don’t want to live here without my son! Please, heal him! Lord, give the medical staff the wisdom to pinpoint the exact places to eradicate this disease from his body. Please, Lord, don’t let the cancer spread! Please, heal him! I am in a pit of despair and anguish over this. Lord, I need You now more than ever. I love You! Amen

The Dark Is Light To You

Blessed Father,
I am in utter darkness right now. Lord, the doctors don’t know what is wrong with me. I am scared. Lord, I love my husband and children. I am not ready to leave yet. I want to see many more joyous Christmases with them as we celebrate Jesus’ birth together. Father, please show the doctors where to look and what tests to give me. Lord, I want so badly to hold my children right now and I can’t! Please, heal this disease that has plagued me. Father, I miss being in my home with my family. I am thankful for the hospital staff with me and I pray that Your will be done in this. I love You, Lord! Amen

Everyday Sickness

I am in awe of all of the blessings you have given me! I thank you for my family and most of all for Jesus, my Savior! Father, please heal me quickly of this cold. I can’t breathe at night and I am not getting any sleep. Father, allow me to rest so I can feel refreshed and ready for tomorrow. I am drained when I come home from work and I just want to sleep. I want to spend time with my family but I am physically exhausted. Lord, I pray for a swift healing, so I can get back to loving on my family. I love You! Amen

My Grandpa

O Lord,
My grandpa has been one of the biggest influences of my life here. He read me stories about Jesus when I was very little. I have so many fond memories of him and he has been a solid example of Jesus to me. Lord, he is not doing well and I am fighting back the tears daily. Lord, I’m not ready for grandpa to leave for heaven. Father, if it is Your will, I pray that you would heal him. Father, You know what is best and I am at Your humble mercies. Please, if at all possible, heal my grandpa and allow us one more Christmas with him. I love You and I need You! Amen

The Poor and Malnourished

O Lord,
My heart goes out to all of the people in poverty stricken countries. Lord, countless numbers of men, women, and children die for lack of food and water. They are plagued with diseases and are in utter anguish daily. Father, I don’t know what I can do for them, but if there is something please show me! Lord, my heart breaks for those that need the bare necessities of life. Father, please be with those in need in those countries. Heal the sick there and help them find food. Lord, do You want me to take a missions trip? If so, I will because I know You will be with me. Lord, be with the poor and powerless and bring them out of the sickness they are in. I love You! Amen


I hope and pray that whether you are sick or someone you know is that God is with you. He hears your prayers and He has the power to heal. Pray to Him! Give Him your concerns! May God continue to bless you as you live a life worthy of the calling.

Please pray for my husband, Bob, who is recovering from pneumonia and has swollen lymph nodes and suspected cancer. Even on constant oxygen , his level is low. He is going for PET Scan tomorrow. I pray the Oncologist will be knowledgeable in successfully treating whatever is found on the scan. We will be married 62 years the 24th., but I don’t want him to leave me yet and I don’t want him to suffer. He is in God,s hands and His will, will be done. God Bless
