Dear God, We confess our need for you today. We need your healing and your grace. We need hope restored.

Forgive us for running all different directions and spinning our wheels to find help, when true help and healing must be found first in You. Forgive us for forgetting how much we need you, above everyone and everything else. We come to you and bring you the places we are hurting. You see where no one else is able to fully see or understand. You know the pain we’ve carried. The burdens. The cares. You know where we need to be set free.

Prayer for Healing Sick Family and Friends
Lord Jesus, thank you that you love [name of the person who needs healing]. I know that you hate what their illness is doing to them/me. I ask 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. God, I thank you that [name of the 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. Amen.

Prayer for Comfort in God’s Presence
Jesus, As I’ve heard my friend’s latest news, it simply feels as if the water is too high and the flames are too intense. Please help ________ not to give into the fear that can come from focusing on the circumstances swirling around him but to remember the promise that you are with him. While I know that you are always with him, please give him a tangible reminder of your presence today and that you will faithfully comfort the hurting. Perhaps a verse posted in an unexpected place or a prayer offered by a co-worker or a kind gesture from a stranger. I entrust him to you knowing that you will be with him on this journey and your presence is greater than anything he will face. Because of your love for him, please give him your comfort and peace that surpasses all understanding and guide him forward into your love. Amen.
Prayer for Freedom and Healing
You are a miracle-working God. Give me a vision for what freedom looks like for me. Give me faith to believe You for my miracle. Show me what makes me tired. Show me what masters me and slows me down. Help me to lose my taste for that which weakens me, and acquire a taste for that which strengthens me. Heal me from the inside out! Help me to make the necessary changes. I want to participate with You in my healing process. Awaken fresh life in me! Amen.
A Prayer for Health and Healing
Father, strengthen us to hold captive the joy You bless our lives with daily. Help us to walk freely in Your love. For as Paul reminds us in 1 Timothy 4:8, “Although training your body has certain payoffs, godliness benefits all things–holding promise for life here and now and promise for the life that is coming.” Send us more of Your Holy Spirit, to help us focus on Your Word daily. Give us hearts like Jesus.
Give us the wisdom to seek You first each day, before each decision. It’s often the little thoughts and daily decisions that lead us into a sudden spiral of bad health. Enlighten us and guide us through Your Word. Let our hearts burn for more of You each day.
Help us endure the pain of chronic conditions, some of which will not find healing in this broken and sinful world. We know that You work all things for good, but in those moments of chronic pain and suffering, it can be impossible to understand Your perfect and just hand in it all. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Free them from these illnesses and heal the wounds that cause this evil. Jesus, through the intercession of Our Lady of Health, makes sure that the bedridden and weakened do not lose heart.

When can I pray these prayers?
One of the best things about prayers is that they can be said whenever and wherever you want. Contrary to what many people think, prayers do not have specific days of the week to be prayed or times of the day.
In this case, if you have a person suffering in the hospital, or if you yourself are suffering, you can and should start praying right now. The sooner you start praying, the sooner you will get the spiritual help you need to help that person or to be helped yourself.
Don’t worry about the time or the day of the week or anything like that. Just worry about having a heart full of faith and believing that this person will really get better, nothing more.
Will the power of these prayers help a sick person?
First of all, the power is not just in the prayers, but within you. What I mean by that is that a prayer only has power if it is said by someone with strength and faith. Having said that, I am sure that these prayers for health will help anyone.
I say this because your faith is capable of making anything happen. When you pray with faith and already believe that your request will be granted, you can be sure that your prayers will succeed.
Your prayers will help fill that person’s heart with faith and also, who knows, make that person achieve a miracle. We must believe from the first day that everything will be fine, we must never doubt or let negative thoughts enter our heads.
Have faith, and trust, and always believe in the best!
As you may have noticed, it’s all a matter of faith. Pray which prayer to pray, if you don’t have faith, it won’t have the power and strength to work.
So, pray with a lot of faith inside your heart, believe from the beginning that you are going to help that person, and pray whenever you can. You can be sure that your request will be heard and properly answered, as you will have all the necessary energy to make it happen.
In conclusion, you can and should draw on the powers of all the prayers in this article. Don’t be afraid to try them all, and pray whenever possible, if you have faith you can and should pray as many times as you want.
Health is complicated, but it is not impossible to improve. Therefore, don’t just ask for a miracle, also ask for strength, hope, and faith for that sick person, because it is something that he truly needs.
Other than that, just choose the prayers that you like the most from this article and pray them. If you want to pray on different days, you can and should save this page or the image prayers so you can pray continuously.
Sometimes we think that there is nothing we can do for someone in the hospital, but that is not true. We can always resort to the powers of prayers to help someone in poor health and very sick. This energy that we are going to create will help that person to face and overcome the problems. Hope this helps, if you have any questions, leave a comment below!
