Prayer for the Sick and Shut-in
Focus Scripture: James 5:15-16 15 The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven. 16 Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.
Holy, Heavenly God, we lift up those who are sick and shut-in today. Bless them wherever they languish. We pray that you touch them with your healing touch. Comfort them with your soothing balm. Take away their physical pain and give them peace of mind. Help them to remember that you are in control. Bless those who are in hospice and those in nursing homes and hospitals. We lift up those who are troubled with heavy emotional burdens. You already know each of us by name, O God. We pray that you meet each one of us at our point of need – right where we are — and abide with us. Speak into our situations, O God. Wrap us up in your perfect love. We thank you. We praise you. And we give you the glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.
