Thank you that you bless the medical services with great skills and wisdom. Thank you that the operation went successfully, Lord please now bless each step of the recovery process.

Father God,

I pray for my loved one in this hour of need. May they be aware of your hand holding them and encouraging them as they now rest and allow their healing to begin. Please heal them of the symptoms of this illness and touch and restore them right at the cause of this sickness. Lord help them to change areas in their lives that would aid healing.

Come renew not only their bodies but their minds and hearts also. May they find new peace.

Prayer For Hope and Strength

(the prayer poem in the film above)

Almighty God,
You reach into the darkness with hope, truth and light. Stretch out your strong hand in this situation, hold and rescue those who have suffered. Let your almighty love move mountains, cross seas and breathe life into the darkest places.

Light that redeems.
Light that restores.
Light that heals.
Light that protects.
Light that saves.

There is nothing higher, stronger or greater than your love.
We trust in you.
