I want to share with you a prayer for healing I wrote when I was suffering from a mysterious knee injury that would not heal. I did not know if I would be able to live without pain, bend my knee, or walk without crutches again. Take these words and make them your own for your own life’s pain, whether physical or spiritual. Let’s pray them together.
My dear Heavenly Father,
I come before you today broken and ailing. You know my pain and you know its cause.
I pray for my heart and mind and soul during this time of uncertainty. Lord, I pray that I will seek you out as my Comforter and my Healer. I pray that you will show me your love and point me to you. I pray that I will be diligent in my prayers to you. Lord, I need to be aware of your presence now more than ever.
I pray for all of those who hear my story. I pray that they would be compassionate and that I wouldn’t be complaining. Help me be more thoughtful about my communication. Lord, let me point to you with my words.
I pray that someday soon I will be able to walk fully again and without aid. Lord, I long for the day when I can delight in running again.
Lord, I plead with you to show me your love. Work for the good in me, for I love you. I pray for healing. I pray for a solution to my pain. I pray for an end to this period of pain and disability. Lord, I pray that you will be with me. Lord, I pray that you will comfort me. Lord, I pray that you will heal me. Stand beside me and help me through this. You know I love you. You know I seek you. Lord, you are my all. Grant me rest.
Lord, I thank you for Jesus who knows extreme pain. I pray that I will seek solace in knowing that his pain was suffered on my behalf. Lord, I do not have a god who knows no pain, but You have experienced and suffered just as I do now. Lord, I thank you for the cross. I thank you for Jesus.
In His precious name I pray,
(God has answered this prayer for me in my life. Praise God! I really do believe in his power to heal us physically.)
In which area of your life do you need healing? Do you struggle to believe that God can really heal?
