You know my friends/family members so much better than I do. You know their sickness and the burden they carry. You also know their hearts. Lord, I ask you to be with them now as you work in there lives. Lord, let your will be done in my friend's/family life. If there is a sin that needs to be confessed and forgiven, please help them to see the need and confess.
Lord, I pray for my friends/family 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 friends, but I also trust in the plan you have for their lives.
Lord, I don't always understand your ways. I don't know why my friends/family has to suffer, but I trust you. I ask that you look with mercy and grace towards them. Nourish their spirit and soul in this time of suffering and comfort him with your presence.
Let them all know you are there with them through this difficulty. Give them strength. And may you, through this difficulty, be glorified in their lives and also in mine.
Lord, I have not listed names, because I know you know them one by one. Some suffer in silence, some suffer alone.
Thank you Lord for being with them, and me!
This is my ernest prayer, in Jesus name, AMEN!
In Paradise there is no sickness, pain or suffering!
