A prayer for my sick mom
(a prayer for my mother to be healed)

O Lord, build a wave that towers with strength
That splashes with truth
And breaks in love.
O Lord, bring a wave that sings out in praise
That carries your grace
And lets healing rise up.
O Lord, may this wave of strength, power and love
Wash over my dear mom to heal.
O Lord, may this wave sweep away the disease,
Heal the wounds and the pain she feels.
O Lord, lead my prayers,
So I dwell near to you,
May I soak in your redeeming power.
O Lord, take my hands and help me to be,
More of you to my mom in this hour.


Prayer for Healing

Get well soon prayer for a mother

O Lord,

Be beside mum, comfort her and hold her close.
May she know that she can rest and feel safe in your arms.
Bring your healing to her body,
Filling her with love and hope.
Touch her with miracle hands that restore and renew.
Watch over her thoughts and dreams by day and night.
May she dwell on happy memories and look forward to good times ahead.
May each day that passes bring little joys into her life.
Flowers, good wishes and a nice meal.
May these things bring happiness and peace.
Keep her safe until she is well.
And then may she live, love and enjoy life again to the full.


The Lord is my Shepherd

Prayer for surgery and healing
(a prayer for a successful recovery after an operation)

O Lord,

Be so close beside my dear one. Come whisper words of great hope into her heart. Shut out the pain, the worry and fear and wrap her up within your soft, gentle love.
Bless the efforts of the surgeons who have worked to bring life and healing to her body. Please protect and keep her in your rest and care. May she know your presence close by each day.

bible verses on God's healing

"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)

"He suffered and endured great pain for us, but we thought his suffering was punishment from God. He was wounded and crushed because of our sins; by taking our punishment, he made us completely well."

(Isaiah 53:4-5, 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)
