Prayer for a sick friend


Dear Father,

I am concerned for my friend who is ill. So I lift my prayers to you, King of Kings and Lord of Lords! You put the stars in the sky and filled the seas with water. You are the giver of life whom understands the wonderful development of a new baby and filled the earth with plant life that provides us with medicine. So I am confident that you can touch my dear friend and bring your restoration. Give their bodies new strength, health and wholeness. Cover their hearts, minds and emotions with the oil of your healing.

I trust them into your care, because you love them even more than I do.

Amen.



Prayer for a sick person



Dear God,

Touch, heal, restore, amend, redeem, awaken, hold, breathe, sing, speak! We invite you to come and be Lord in this situation. We open our hearts, our minds, our hands and welcome your restoring power. May this sickness end and may your healing begin.

In Jesus name,

Amen.

Prayer for a sick mother

(this petition can also be adapted for a poorly grandmother)


Almighty Father,

Hold my lovely mum at this time of illness, watch over her when she can not sleep, speak your love to her when she is afraid, touch and heal her weak body.

Lord, you are the fountain of life. I ask for your life giving water to pour down upon her. Build her up again, look after her emotions and may she know your loving arms are around her at this time. Thank you for your love, and for your promises to your children. Thank you that you will never leave us, and that you bring us a peace that surpasses all understanding.

Amen.

Almighty Father,

Hold my lovely dad at this time of illness, watch over him when he can not sleep, speak your love to him when he is afraid, touch and heal his weak body.

Lord, you are the fountain of life. I ask for your life giving water to pour down upon him. Build him up again, look after his emotions and may he know your loving arms are around him at this time. Thank you for your love, and for your promises to your children. Thank you that you will never leave us, and that you bring us a peace that surpasses all understanding.

Amen.

A Beautiful Prayer

Beautiful Tree Branches hanging low down

I think one of our deepest longings as humans is to know that there is a purpose for our lives, that we have a role to play in this world. Thankfully as Christians we can be certain that life isn’t just a random series of events. God the creator of the earth and the heavens Read More


An Ancient Celtic Blessing

“May the Road Rise Up To Meet You” is a beautiful old Celtic blessing. Blessings are a gift and ancient ones like these help us to become open channels for the fragrance of Christ to surround those we give out to. I love the references to creation – the sun, the wind, the rain – Read More

We decided to record many different voices because we wanted to build a diverse picture of Read More
