"All our times are in Thy hand. All diseases come at Thy call, and go at Thy bidding."

We all have someone in our lives who is in need of healing. Whether it be physical or spiritual, healing is needed by almost everyone in some measure — because we live in a fallen world and suffer the painful consequences of sin.

God allows difficulties to occur, knowing that he is able to work them together for our greater good, though it is not always easy to see this at first. At the same time, God is a God of healing and will often extend his healing touch when he hears our cries and prayers, delivering us from the suffering we endure.

Just as he healed many during his life on earth, he continues to heal countless souls from his heavenly throne. Below is a simple yet powerful prayer for the healing of a loved one.

All our times are in Thy hand. All diseases come at Thy call, and go at Thy bidding.Thou redeemest our life from destruction, and crownest us with loving kindness and tender mercies. We bless Thee, that Thou hast heard prayer, and commanded deliverances for our friend and Thy servant, who has been under Thine afflicting hand.He (or she) was brought low, but Thou hast helped him (her). May he (she) not only live, but declare the works of the Lord!As Thou hast delivered his eyes from tears, his feet from falling, and his soul from death, may he daily inquire: What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits towards me, and resolve to offer unto Thee the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and to call upon the name of the Lord.May we ever remember that recovery is only a reprieve and that someday we will go to our rest in the Lord. May we therefore secure the righteous path and live with eternity ever in our view.
