(This is an intercessory prayer for someone who is suffering from a serious illness .)
We lift up this person to You
With complete faith that You will do what is right,
We know Your sovereign ability to heal,
And that You welcome them with outstretched arms.
We ask that You would cause this person’s body to work just as
You created the human body to work in the Garden of Eden—
Every cell, every bone, every vessel and artery,
From the toes to the scalp.
Be their Physician and their Healer,
Advocate their wellness and
Strengthen their soul to battle for health
Against any spiritual forces that block their well-being.
We ask that this person would draw nearer to You through this illness,
That they would make You King of their life,
And see You will never forsake them,
And that they would repent of sin,
And rejoice in Your forgiveness.
Save them from despair of mind,
Increase their hope in You,
Guide them to pursue You,
And in You they will find everlasting life
So that when they do perish,
They will enter a place where there is no mourning or pain,
Where You will wipe away every tear from our eyes
In our heavenly home.
Until then, we know that there are no odds too hard for You to beat,
We relinquish our will over this person’s life,
And bow to You and Your good and perfect will, Almighty God,
That You can triumph over this illness and bring victory for the glory of Your Son.
In Christ’s Name, Amen.
