You know my friend/family member so much better than I do.
You know his/her sickness and the burden he carries.
You also know his heart. Lord, I ask you to be with my friend now,
working in his life. Let your will be done in my friend's life.
If there is a sin that needs to be confessed and forgiven,
Lord, please help him to see his need and confess.
Lord, I pray for my friend because your Word says I should pray for his 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 to heal my friend,
but I also trust in the plan you have for his life. Lord, I don't always understand
your ways, and 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
with your presence. Let my friend know you are there with him
through this difficulty. And may you be glorified in his life and also in mine.
