For Recovery from Illness
O Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior, Physician of souls and bodies, who became human and suffered death on the Cross for our salvation; through your tender love and compassion, you healed all kinds of sickness and affliction; I pray that you will visit me in my suffering, and grant me grace and strength to bear this sickness with which I am afflicted, with Christian patience and submission to your will, trusting in your loving kindness and tender mercy.

Have compassion on me, and let mercy and justice meet; and deliver me from this sickness and suffering I am undergoing.
Grant that my sickness may be the means of my true repentance and amendment of my life according to your will, that I may spend the rest of my days in your love and fear: that my soul, being helped by your grace and sanctified by your holy Spirit, may be prepared for its passage to eternal life, in the company of the faithful, and may praise and glorify you, with your Eternal Father and life-giving Spirit.

Prayer should be part of the treatment and recovery plan when you or a loved one is sick or injured.
Thank you, Lord, for hearing this prayer and helping me as I face this injury. I trust in you and submit to your will, and I know that you will never forsake me. Please give me the strength and discipline to persevere through my treatment and recovery, and the wisdom to participate constructively in my own treatment. Please guide the doctors in their care for me, and please bless my friends and family as they support me through this challenge.
The healing prayer above can be customized as needed. For example, you can replace “injury” with “illness” or with a more specific description of the problem. And if you are praying for someone other than yourself, you can replace instances of “I” and “me” with the name of the person you are praying for.
Prayer can be an immense help and comfort in times of illness and injury. If you, or someone that you care about, is facing a serious illness, disease, or injury, do not neglect to pray earnestly for healing and recovery. Fear and doubt in such times is completely natural, but you should not let despair overwhelm you. As Jesus told his disciples, you should “always pray and not give up” (Luke 18:1).
Do not doubt that God has the power to heal the sick. “Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people” (Matthew 4:23). And do not doubt that “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer” (Matthew 21:22). Remember that “the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective” (James 5:16).
You should work closely with your doctors and take an active role in your own treatment and recovery. Take medications as prescribed, don’t skip or delay needed appointments, and work diligently in needed therapies. But also pray regularly. Use this challenging period to build your relationship with God, and trust that God will hear your healing prayer.
As Proverbs 3:5-8 says: “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.”
