Dear Lord of Mercy,

You are the One I turn to for help in moments of weakness and times of need. I ask you to be with [patient's name] as she fights this illness. I ask you to turn her weakness into strength and her pain into comfort for those she loves. Let her be filled with patience and joy as she quietly awaits your healing touch. I ask that [patient's name] and her family will continue to trust in what you have planned for them, even in the middle of this suffering. All of this I pray in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen.

Prayers of Searching for Truth

Lord Jesus, You claim to be the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Grant that I might be undaunted by the cost of following You as I consider the reasons for doing so. If what You claim is true, please guide me, teach me, and open me to the reality of who You are. Give me an understanding of You that is coherent and convincing, and that leads to the life You promise. Amen.

Prayers for Strength


You alone are worthy of our praise. You created me and you have loved me from the very beginning. I love you, great God of heaven, as you are my everything.  Father, in my time of need, I beg for strength. I ask for your strength to hold me up and carry me when I cannot carry myself. I pray for a focused heart, faithfully relying on you in all things. Shower me with your blessings, God. I need you and I love you. In Jesus name, Amen.

Heavenly Father,

As you know, I am facing a major health challenge in my life. I ask that you grant me the energy and determination to find the right physicians, treatments and programs; the courage and grace to follow them; and Your peace and serenity to rest and restore my body, mind, and spirit. Amen.


Lord of Mercy,

It is You who I turn to in moments of weakness and times of need. I ask You to be with my loved one as they face this illness. I ask You to turn their weakness into strength and their pain into comfort for those they love. Let them be filled with patience and joy as they quietly await Your healing touch. I ask that my loved ones and their family and friends will continue to trust in what You have planned for them, even in the middle of this suffering. All of this I pray in the name of Your son Jesus Christ. Amen.


Lord God,

The way You love and take care of me is amazing. When I consider the way You provide for something as small as a bird, I am very encouraged, knowing how much greater Your love is for me. Heavenly Father, I could never deserve everything Your hand has provided me. Please provide me with the strength and the patience to await your peace and comfort. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.


God, our Father,

Thank you for being the God of all comfort. Thank you for your Holy Spirit, and thank you for your precious Son. Oh God, I pray for strength as I face uncertain times and an uncertain future. But, Lord God, I understand I will not face this alone, for You are with me. Help me to remember. Remind me of your presence. Shower me with your love and blessings. In Jesus holy name I pray, Amen.

Prayers for Faith

Lord God,

You are my rock and my shield. There is nothing that I will face today without You. I depend on You, realizing that You deserve my trust. I desire to honor You in all I do today. Amen.


Lord God,

Just as You have the power and authority to silence storms, please silence the storm that currently lives inside me. Give me the faith to fully trust You in every area of my life, including my current challenges. You carefully watch over even the smallest details of my life. I want to give my doubts and fears to You and completely trust You. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Prayers for Focus

Lord Jesus,

Many things will attempt to grab my attention, distracting me from what is really important. Give me the focus and courage to ignore the unnecessary, so I can be attentive to that which gives life. Thank You Lord for being the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Amen.


Heavenly Father,

My prayer is that You will help me to have a never-ending hunger and thirst for a deeper relationship with You.  Help me to discern Your voice from the sea of voices that I will hear today. Give me the wisdom to understand what You are saying and the desire to respond as I should. Help me realize that nothing can truly satisfy me like You. I am truly blessed. Amen.

Prayers of Gratitude

Heavenly Father,

Your promises are beyond comparison. I am incredibly grateful for how Your provide for every need I have.  Continue to teach me the power of prayer, learning to trust You more and more every day. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.


Lord God,

I am so grateful for how incredibly patient You are with me. All too often I have made decisions that are less than Your best for me. Rather than choosing to live with those regrets, give me courage to get back up and live for You. Help me look for ways where I can be a blessing to others. Father, thank You for always loving me! Amen.
