prayer for recovery
Featured on this page are two modern prayers which ask God for his healing and protection as you recover from illness, an accident, depression or recent surgery. There are also many promises in the scriptures about God's healing, kindness and strength and three important verses are quoted further down this page. Also here is a film which asks for God's peace of mind as you rest and recuperate.
Prayer for speedy recovery from illness
Your love has held me and kept me through this suffering. Now may your hope and healing lead me quickly to a place of restoration. O Lord the oil of your healing flows through me like a living stream. I choose to bathe in these clear waters each day.
I will keep my eyes on you, and trust in you that I will fully recover. I give you all that I am, and rest in your peace. I hold tightly to your promises. They are like a spring that overflows with goodness.
I wait on you.
Prayer for recovery from surgery
Thank you for the surgeons, doctors and nurses that have cared for me. Bless the work of their hands and lead them as they give out to those in need.
Lord, you have been beside me each step of the way. You watched over me through this surgery, your angels stood guard when I needed protection. I ask that the oil of your healing would flow through me anew. That it would heal and protect and breathe life into my body. Please give me rest and peace each moment of the day. May I would dwell in your love and truth. My trust is in you for complete restoration.
Father, thank you for your love to me.
an inspiring short film asking for God's restoring power and love to come, with uplifting images of a beautiful beach as the sun begins to set:-
"My trust is in you for complete restoration"
"Lord, heal me and I will be completely well; rescue me and I will be perfectly safe. You are the one I praise!"
(Jeremiah 17:14, GNT)
If you are sick, ask the church leaders to come and pray for you. Ask them to put olive oil on you in the name of the Lord. If you have faith when you pray for sick people, they will get well. The Lord will heal them, and if they have sinned, he will forgive them.
(James 5:14-15, CEV)
"Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits- who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion"
(Psalm 103:2-4, NIV)
