An ancient bible blessing suitable for sending to a friend to let you know you are praying for them:-

Get well soon prayer

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.

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.

and until we meet again, 
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

blessings from the bible

"The Lord bless you
and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace."

(Numbers 6:24-26, NIV)

"Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God."

(Philippians 4:6, CEV)

"O my soul, bless GOD.
From head to toe, I'll bless his holy name!
O my soul, bless GOD, don't forget a single blessing!
He forgives your sins-every one.
He heals your diseases-every one.
He redeems you from hell-saves your life!
He crowns you with love and mercy-a paradise crown.
He wraps you in goodness-beauty eternal.
He renews your youth-you're always young in his presence."

(Psalm 103:1-5, The Message)
