We all will get sick in our lifetime. We will cover how you can get assistance in coping with it in your life. Let us use some of my daily prayers:
For the Suffering
Lord Jesus Christ, during your life you were surrounded by suffering and you eliminated it whenever you could. Look down on this suffering world and alleviate its suffering. Help the sick in body, especially those terminally ill and the sick at heart who are weary of life. Come to the aid of those victimized by war or by their uncaring neighbors. Let me be open to others, to love them through Your “Shared Love,” and to share with them what I am and have. Amen.
Prayer for the Disabled
Lord God, You are full of love and mercy toward Your people on earth. You always hear our prayers. Thus we dare boldly to approach Your “Sharing Love” today on behalf of all who are disabled in mind, body, or spirit. Your almighty power can heal them. O God of love, bless the medical procedures and guide those who apply them. Let us be helpful by assisting the handicapped in every way possible. Grant that all who are afflicted may trust in You as one who loves us, forgives our failures, and promises complete healing of our soul in the eternal lovefest. Thank You. Amen.
Prayer of the Sick
O Lover God, You know that I am sick, and You do not need for me to give You a report on my condition. Keep me from the sin of blaming You for my adversity. Give me patience to accept Your will, which is always good. Never let me doubt Your will/Plan for me. Never let me doubt Your Love which You have shown to me in the past. Watch over my loved ones and help them to deal with my illness in a way that honors You. Replace fear with the confidence that You will never leave us nor forsake us. Amen.
Prayer for the Sick
Our Heavenly Father, look with compassion upon all who are ill. Set Your healing powers to work in them. We thank You for medical science. Bless the hands of those who minister to our loved ones who are ill. Strengthen the hands of those who minister with tenderness and love, and guide the skillful hands of doctors and nurses. Give patience to those who carry the cross of affliction, who bear the burden of illness. Fill their hearts with the joy of”Shared Love” and the hope of their graduation to Your eternal lovefest. Assure them of Your abiding presence. We commend them to Your gracious c are through love. Amen.
Lord, we thank You for those people who take care of others. It is not an easy job, and many people are tired at the end of the day. We ask that You are present when they are tired and that you will lift their spirits. Help them when the feel challenged by their charges. Give them an extra measure of Your love when they are feeling down. Help them to realize that the work they do is important to You Lover God and to others and that they are loved b y both. Because You first loved us, help us to love all humankind. Amen.
I Hope this gives you a better understanding of how you and sickness relate to each other.
