Healing Prayer

God, you know me so well. You created me. You know the number of hairs on my hea
d, and you even know the thoughts conceived in my heart before I ever vocalize t
hem. You've told us to come to you and ask for every need of life. You are Jehov
ah-Rapha, the God who heals, and you have the final word on my destiny, the numb
er of years I'll live and serve you on earth.
I'm coming to you today as your child, longing to hear from you and asking for y
our divine healing. There's so much I don't understand about life. But I do know
that with one touch, one word, you can make me whole. Please forgive me of my s
ins, cleanse me of my unrighteousness, and begin your healing from the inside ou
I don't always know what your will is Lord, especially in times like now, when I
desperately seek your face. I offer you no promises, no bargains, no deals to e
xchange for my health. I simply bow my heart before you to tell you the desire o
f my heart: that I want to spend as many years as I can loving you here, loving
others, and wanting to become more like you. However you choose to accomplish th
at is up to youand okay with me. If you use doctors to provide healing, give them
wisdom to know what to do. Regardless of how you accomplish it, the healing you
give is always miraculous. And you deserve all the praise.
I absolutely believe you have the power to heal. You demonstrated that on earth,
and you still heal in miraculous ways today. Even when my faith is weak, you sa
y it is enough, and my love for you is strong. And I know you already hold my he
art and life in your hands. It's up to you. If I can bring you more glory throug
h healing, then that's what I ask for. That's what I desire.
But if your answer is no, or not now, I know that your grace is sufficient for m
e. Ultimately, I want your will to be my will. I look forward to spending an ete
rnity with you. But Lord, if you have planned still more for me to do here on th
is earth, I not only need and want your physical healing, Lord, but a thorough,
deep-down cleansing and strengtheninga whole-hearted renewal of all that I am. Be
cause all that I am is yours. Use this trial to strengthen me from a "what-if" f
aith to a "no-matter-what" faith. And no matter what, I choose to honor you and
give you glory.
In Jesus's name, Amen.

Help me to discover new ways to reveal your love to all I meet.
Keep my mind clear and focused on all I need to achieve,

A Prayer for Peace

Oh Lord, sometimes my insides feel like a battle zone, where missiles are fallin
g too close to home. Other times I m caught in an endless storm, with thoughts f
lying out of control. Confusion reigns, and defeat creeps in to steal my joy. I
need your peacethe deep-down-in-your-heart kind that stays with me day and night
and speaks confidently into the wind. Calm my anxious spirit, Lord; all the atta
cking "if-onlys" and "what-ifs" fill me with needless worry.
I know that trust is a big part of experiencing peace and that fear has no place
in my life. Most of the things I worry about or dread don t even happen. So I m
declaring my trust in you. I m releasing the reins of my life again and asking
you to take control. I may need to pray this same prayer daily, but I m tired of
the frenzy of life that leaves my schedule and my thoughts without any margin.
I need more of you, Lord, and less of me.
I surrender and admit: I can t control people, plans, or even all my circumstanc
es, but I can yield those things to you, and focus on your goodness. Thank you t
oday for every good gift you ve given, every blessing you ve sent, all the forgi
veness I did not deserve, and, yes, for every trial you ve allowed into my life.
You bring good out of every circumstance if I ll only let go and believe you. I
know that when I pray and give thanks instead of worrying, you have promised th
at I can experience the kind of peace that passes all understanding. That s your
kind of peace, Lord. And it s the kind I crave.
