Turning to God when we or our loved ones are sick is quite a common thing. If you did this during a time illness, you’re not alone 😊. When we are scared and worried because of our health, turning to God and saying a prayer for healing is a natural thing.
We’re scared, we’re worried, but moreover, we’re helpless, as we are in the hands of others to heal us. Feeling this way, it’s only natural to turn to God for comfort and help. These heart felt requests asking God to intercede and to help us bring us comfort and hope in times of great worry.
As well as turning to God when we are sick, we also turn to God when this happens to our loved ones. Again this can be a very emotional time for us. We trust God and the medical professionals to help and comfort our loved ones.
These prayers for the sick can be very powerful and filled with emotion. We’re not asking God to help us, we’re asking him to help those we love.
A Prayer for Emotional Healing.
Most time we turn to the Lord when we or our loved ones have physical illnesses. We can’t, however, forgot about the emotional strains that we face. Asking God for help with a prayer for strength and guidance is also a healing prayer.
Healing our mind and emotions is an important part of physical, emotional and spiritual health and wellbeing. We can’t look after one part of our health without caring for the other parts. It’s important for us to care for our emotional and spiritual wellbeing as much as our physical health.
