Get well soon prayer

(a blessing suitable for a greeting card or message)

May you have rest and peace in your heart.
May angels surround your bed through the night.
May each day bring healing with the dawn,
Restore your energy, and heal your wounds.
May hope remain within your heart,
As you find new strength and make a new start.
I pray you'll soon be well,
To love and live and enjoy life again.


Get well soon prayer for a child

(a prayer for God's healing on a young life)

O Lord,

Touch this precious one with your healing wings,
Come carry them, protect them though everything.
Tickle them with happiness,
Move their hearts to joy,
Surround them with goodness,
Teddies, books and toys.
Come wrap them in safety,
With hugs and love and care.
Stand by when they're sleeping,
Walk with them everywhere.
Restore his/her little body,
To leap and dance again.
Most of all Lord,
Be my little ones best friend.

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.


prayer quotes from the bible

"Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies."

(Psalm 103:2-4, NLT)

"But he endured the suffering that should have been ours, the pain that we should have borne. All the while we thought that his suffering was punishment sent by God. But because of our sins he was wounded, beaten because of the evil we did. We are healed by the punishment he suffered, made whole by the blows he received".

(Isaiah 53:4-5, GNT)

"Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise."

(Jeremiah 17:14, NIV)
