A Prayer for Healing 

My Lord and my God, as I read the words of your faithful servant David I can not identify with him. I am not left alone. I thank you for so many dear friends, family and others that I do not know that have expressed their care and concern for me. I do not deserve their love and I know it is because your love is in their hearts. It is the same love you have for me that I do not deserve.   

My Father, I humbly ask for healing, not for my sake, but for theirs. May my life be a reason for them to rejoice in you and not a reason for sadness. May they rejoice in your mercy and compassion. May my suffering never be a reason for someone to turn from you or question your goodness.

Your Holy Spirit has settled my heart on the truth that to live is Christ and to die is gain. I do not pray for healing for my sake but for theirs. I ask this in the glorious name of your Son, on whom rests our hope, Amen
