Prayer for Loneliness and Illness

Lord, thank you for being my doctor and Savior. Jesus, thank you for visiting me in my loneliness and filling that separation from others with your royal presence.

Thank you that it is during the time I spend in bed that I get to know You and Your wisdom the most. Now I have time to gaze at You and talk to You.

Lord, I praise You for giving me new energy and renewing my body. Let my body be strong and be able to overcome obstacles and demanding tasks again. Let me be able to improve my health with physical exercise as well (and help me remember to do it!).

God, in my illness, thank you for speaking to me through the story of King David, who came before you and sang in faithfulness. Feed my heart and mind with his song, to make room in me for even more of you and Your healing: 

Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits — who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Psalms 103:1–5

Lord, thank you for being faithful. Thank you for coming to me and comforting me in my time of trial.
