Thank you so much. I wasn't going to post it but it has been on my desk for weeks and…
When we are sick in our bodies sometimes it is hard to focus on faith instead of fear. Especially when you’ve been given a negative report and are trying to maintain a level of faith in God despite the evidence that you see and hear. The word teaches us that faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1 KJV) We are also taught that the just shall live by faith. (Hebrews 10:38 KJV) Being in human form, however, this can prove to be a challenging task. Specifically, when you think you have control of your life and do not realize it is in God that we live, we move and we have our being. Yes, we are human and are not superheroes, but we have to fight against fear with whatever faith we do have and trust God that He knows best. Here is a prayer we hope will help.
Heavenly Father, I thank You for loving me. I thank You for sending Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, to the world to save and to set me free. I trust in Your power and grace that sustain and restore me.
Loving Father, touch me now with Your healing hands, for I believe that Your will is for me to be well in mind, body, soul, and spirit. Cover me with the Most Precious Blood of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, from the top of my head to the soles of my feet.
Cast anything that should not be in me. Root out any unhealthy and abnormal cells. Open any blocked arteries or veins and rebuild and replenish any damaged areas. Remove all inflammation and cleanse any infection by the power of Jesus’ Precious Blood.
Let the fire of Your healing love pass through my entire body to heal and make new any diseased areas so that my body will function the way You created it to function.
Touch also my mind and my emotion, even the deepest recesses of my heart. Saturate my entire being with Your presence, love, joy, and peace and draw me ever closer to You every moment of my life.
And Father, fill me with Your Holy Spirit and empower me to do Your works so that my life will bring glory and honor to Your Holy Name. I ask this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
And may the peace of God keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Blessings and Peace!
