Dear Lord Jesus,
You know him so much better than I do. You know his sickness and the burden he carries. You also know his heart. Lord, I ask you to be with my friend and his family now as you work in his life. Lord, let your will be done in my friend's life. Lord God, I pray for my friend just as your Word tells me to pray, for healing. I believe you hear this earnest prayer from my heart and that it is powerful because of your promise. I have faith in you, Lord, to heal my friend, but I also trust in the plan you have for his life. Lord, I don't always understand your ways. I don't know why my friend has to suffer, but I trust You. I ask that you look with mercy and grace toward my friend. Nourish his spirit and soul in this time of suffering and comfort him and his family with your presence. Let my friend know you are there with him through this difficulty. Give him strength. And may you, through this difficulty, be glorified in his life and also in mine. Amen.
And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up....The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:15 and 16
Father of mercies and God of all comfort, our only help in time of need: We humbly ask you to hold, visit and relieve your sick servant, for whom our prayers are desired. Look upon him with the eyes of your mercy; comfort him with a sense of your goodness; preserve him from the temptations of the enemy; and give him patience under this affliction. In your good time, restore him to health, and enable him to lead the residue of his life in your presence, and to thy glory; and grant that finally he may dwell with you in life everlasting; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. - Isaiah 41:10
