Prayer To Heal Sick Child

As a parent, it can cause tremendous pain and anxiety when your child is sick or suffering. A chronic illness or life-threatening disease can cause you to lose hope and question God’s presence. You may be overwhelmed by the recurring hospital visits and doctor appointments for your son or daughter. God wants you to experience hope and joy despite the circumstances. We serve a God of healing and strength. Use these prayers for a sick child to experience the mighty working hands of God.

The continuity of our relationship with God is facilitated by our prayer life. 

When we pray, we allow God to do His work in and through us because we are making ourselves vulnerable to Him. Praying also strengthens our connection to God. 

We learn more about a person through conversation and interaction. The same process takes place when we talk to God in prayer. Spending more time in conversation with Him is the surest way to become closer to Him.

As it says in James 4:8, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (NKJV).

Many times in my own life, I have experienced the peace that passes all understanding when I have drawn near to God in prayer.

Praying helps me center my thoughts on what’s most important. Praying gives us a divine perspective on life and is therefore crucial. A member of my youth group passed away suddenly. Finding effective ways to love and minister to our wounded students has been challenging. The power of prayer has sustained me through this difficult period. It has helped me communicate with God, hear His voice, and experience His presence while I grieve alongside my church and community.

Be worried about nothing, but in everything, through prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (NKJV).

Praying puts us in a position to experience God’s peace, which is beyond our comprehension. Prayer keeps my mind on the things that are dear to God, both in the happy times and the bad.

Healing Prayer For A Sick Child Quotes

It’s hard to imagine a love that trumps a mother’s for her child, especially when they are sick. When they miss out on fun things or are in pain, our hearts ache for them. We would do almost anything, sacrifice what we could, to heal them, make them smile again, see them well. The love of God surpasses what we can comprehend. The Father that gave His own Son, can be trusted to heal our littles. Father, bless and heal our children of their sicknesses. Restore their laughter, and let them play. Stir us to trust You more, and seek You harder. For just as You know us, You know our children. We are entrusted with them as mothers, but they are Yours. And You love them with the same extravagant love. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. ~ Meg Bucher

A Prayer for Miraculous Healing
Lord Jesus, thank you that you love my child. I know that you hate what their illness is doing to them/me. I ask, in the name of Jesus, that you would heal this disease, that you would have compassion and bring healing from all sickness.

Your word says in Psalm 107:19-20 that when we call out to you the Eternal one you will give the order, heal and rescue us from certain death. In the Bible, I have read of miraculous healing and I believe that you still heal the same way today. I believe that there is no illness you cannot heal after all the Bible tells of you raising people from the dead so I ask for your healing in this situation. Amen. ~ Meg Bucher

Healing from God
Dear God, motherhood can be exhausting, but You have placed us perfectly. Encourage our hearts as only You can. Heal our children and breathe life back into our days. For You assure us: “My God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19) As we recall the miraculous healing that Jesus performed on this earth, our hearts are encouraged and reminded of the power our Savior has to heal us. The blind could see, the lame could walk, and the demon-possessed were freed. There is no problem or ailment that is bigger than Jesus. He who knew our trials before He died for us, is there for us. We don’t see the wind, but it still moves. We don’t see God, but He is moving. He is healing, and He is there with a compassionate love for us unmatched by any earthly notion. ~ Meg Bucher

Lord, help me see myself, my child, and our lives through your eyes. I often focus on my circumstances of sickness instead of focusing on You.

Please come to me like you came to Gideon, and set my eyes on Your plan and your provision for today. You are the strength of my heart and my portion forever!

A Prayer for God’s Goodness
