I ask today for healing for our world and the people in it. I pray that you heal those suffering from terminal illnesses, chronic ailments, and mental illnesses. Take these pains and sufferings from them, allowing them to live unburdened by severe health problems. But if that is not Your will Lord, then please just hold them in Your loving hands letting them know that They are not alone in their struggles and that You are always with them. Give comfort to their families and friends, carrying them when they are too weak to stand.
Heal those who are struggling with broken or abusive relationships. Show them a path to healing and safety away from pain. Heal their visible and hidden wounds, wrapping them in Your love so they may know what true unconditional love is.
Help those with unexplained or undiagnosed illnesses find answers so that their healing may begin. Lift the darkness from their struggle to know the cause of their hurt, shine Your light so that they may finally know the name of their adversary.
This day and always Lord, guide the hands and minds of doctors, nurses, surgeons and all those who work in health care. Help them to help others to the best of their abilities. Give them the courage to ask hard questions and to seek help when they need it as well.
Spread Your healing love throughout the world so all my know of You.
