Pray this simple prayer for the healing of a beloved friend who is suffering from any illness.

Whenever we hear of a friend who is enduring any kind of illness, we will want to offer a prayer for their healing. We care much about our friend and it is difficult to see them suffer.

Here is a short prayer for the healing of a friend that asks God to intervene and bring another person back to health.

Think, O God, of our friend who is ill,
whom we now commend to Your compassionate regard.
Comfort him upon his sickbed, and ease his suffering.

We beg for deliverance, and submit that no healing is too hard for the Lord,
if it be His will.
We therefore pray that You bless our friend with Your loving care, renew his strength, and heal what ails him in Your loving name.
Thank You, Lord.
