General prayer asking for good health
Holy Father and good Father, thank you for your kindness to all of us. Thank you for all the good things you have granted us throughout our lives. I come to you, Lord, to ask that you grant health to those who suffer from illness at this time.

Above all things, I ask you, Father, that the sick may have an encounter with you. Help them feel your presence and your hand upon them. That each of them can have contact with people who love you and can hear the message of salvation. Reveal your love and care through your children. That every sick person can hear about Jesus and his sacrifice of love on the cross. May they open their hearts to you, Lord, my God, so that they receive the healing of the soul.
Show your power in the midst of diseases, beloved Father. We know that you can heal any disease and our trust is in you. We want to see you work on this day. In the name of Jesus, amen.

Prayer for a hospitalized patient
Lord, my God, I pray right now for my hospitalized friend. Approach her there in the hospital where she is. That she can feel your presence and that she has no fear or feeling alone. Help her feel your peace, to be calm and confident because you are with her and you are in control of the situation.
Father, help her feel your healing and reassuring presence. May she not despair in the face of the unknown of her illness. Give the doctors wisdom so they can do the necessary tests and start an effective treatment.
Lord, we know that you can work and heal his body at this very moment if it is your will. That would be wonderful! You do know what happens in your body and you have the solution. All our faith is in you. We’d like to see her heal supernaturally, but that’s up to you.
Lord, increase our faith to ask for the manifestation of your power in our bodies and in all areas of our lives. Show your power in the midst of what is going on my dear friend right now. Pick her up, please! In the name of Jesus, amen.
He was pierced for our transgressions, and crushed for our iniquities;
on him fell the punishment, the price of our peace, and thanks to his wounds we were healed.
Prayer before surgery
Dear Father, on this day when my sister’s surgery will take place, I ask that you take full control. Give her peace in this moment, so that she can feel your presence next to her, and know that everything will be fine. Lord, may your angels surround her and protect her from all evil, please her.
Sir, please help the anesthesiologist, the surgeon, and all those who will be present during the surgery. That they are focused and attentive at all times and give their best. Lord, I beg you that everything goes well and that there is no type of complication or emergency situation. Anoint the surgeon’s hands to do everything efficiently and smoothly.
I also ask you, Lord, for recovery time. That my sister can wake up without any problem and that she can recover her health without any type of infection, excessive pain, or complication. Put your hand on it. May her spirit be filled with your peace and the certainty that you will work healing through this surgery. Amen.
Even if I go through dark valleys, I don’t fear any danger
because you are by my side; your shepherd’s rod comforts me.
Prayer for someone with depression
Father God, you know us and you know what we feel before we say it. Thank you because you accompany us at all times, in times of joy and in times of sadness or illness. Your children count on your presence and your love always! We can live with that confidence. Thank you!
Lord, you know how my brother feels right now. He feels depressed and discouraged as if he has a great dark cloud hanging over him. Help him see your light, hear the Holy Spirit, and feel your loving presence right now. You know what is the cause of his depression. Please bring clarity to his mind and to his heart so that he knows what he must do. Let him understand that he is precious to you and that your hand is outstretched at all times. He doesn’t have to walk alone!
You have the solution for this depressing feeling about him. Give him the courage and desire to seek medical help and pastoral counseling. Don’t stay cooped up feeling hopeless, but go out for help. Help him to stand firm in you and to find doctors and wise people who listen to him and accompany him in the restoration process.
Thank you that you hear us when we cry out to you and we can trust that you will act. In the name of Jesus, amen.
Commend your cares to the Lord, and he will sustain you;
he will not allow the righteous to fall and be cast down forever.
Prayer for a terminally ill person
Father God, for you there is nothing impossible and that is our trust. When the doctors say there is no hope, we cling to you more because we know that you can still act. We will not stop praying and asking for healing in the name of Jesus because we believe in you and in your infinite power. Please work in the midst of this illness, beloved Father. Heal this body in a supernatural and miraculous way. You can do it right now if it is your will!
In you, we are more than conquerors. Glory to you, Lord! Thank you that we, your children, have the hope of eternal life. Nothing and no one, no illness or pain will separate us from you or your love! That is our security today and for all eternity. Amen.
Yet in all this we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither what is present nor what is to come, nor powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love that God has manifested us in Christ Jesus our Lord.
