God, you know us so well. You created us. You know the number of hairs on our heads, and you even know the thoughts conceived in our hearts before we ever vocalize them. You’ve told us to come to you and ask for every need of life. You are Jehovah-Rapha, the God who heals, and you have the final word on our destiny, the number of years we’ll live and serve you on earth.
We’re coming to you today as your child, longing to hear from you and asking for your divine healing. There’s so much we don’t understand about life. But we do know that with one touch, one word, you can make us whole. Please forgive us of our sins, cleanse us of our unrighteousness, and begin your healing from the inside out.
We don’t always know what your will is Lord, especially in times like now, when we desperately seek your face. We offer you no promises, no bargains, no deals to exchange for our health. We simply bow our hearts before you to tell you the desire of our hearts: that we want to spend as many years as we can loving you here, loving others, and wanting to become more like you. However you choose to accomplish that is up to you—and okay with us. If you use doctors to provide healing, give them wisdom to know what to do. Regardless of how you accomplish it, the healing you give is always miraculous. And you deserve all the praise.
We absolutely believe you have the power to heal. You demonstrated that on earth, and you still heal in miraculous ways today. Even when our faith is weak, you say it is enough, and our love for you is strong. And we know you already hold our hearts and lives in your hands. It’s up to you. If we can bring you more glory through healing, then that’s what we ask for. That’s what we desire.
But if your answer is no, or not now, we know that your grace is sufficient for us. Ultimately, we want your will to be our will. We look forward to spending an eternity with you. But Lord, if you have planned still more for us to do here on this earth, we not only need and want your physical healing, Lord, but a thorough, deep-down cleansing and strengthening—a whole-hearted renewal of all that we are. Because all that we are is yours. Use this trial to strengthen us from a “what-if” faith to a “no-matter-what” faith. And no matter what, we choose to honor you and give you glory. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
