Dear Lord,

You know my (friend/family member)
So much better than I do. 
You know (name) sickness and the burden s/he carries.
You also know (name) heart. 
Lord, I ask you to be with (name) now as you work in (name) life.

Lord, let your will be done in (name) life.
If there is a sin that needs to be confessed and forgiven,
Please help him/her to see his need and confess.

Lord, I pray for (name),
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 (name),
But I also trust in the plan you have for (name) life.

Lord, I don't always understand your ways.
I don't know why (name) has to suffer,
But I trust you. 
I ask that you look with mercy and grace toward (name)
Nourish his/her spirit and soul in this time
Of suffering and comfort him with your presence.

Let (name) know you are there
With him/her through this difficulty. 
Give (name) strength and may you,
Through this difficulty, be glorified in
His/her life and also in mine.  Amen.
