Prayers for Your Loved Ones

Our heart always aches for the closeness with our loved ones. Sometimes, it gets too painful. In our lifetime, we lose our loved ones. Their special days, festivals, holidays, and the emptiness left by them only increase the pangs of separation.

Not only that, if someone we love gets ill or gets stuck in an unfavorable situation, our heart goes out to them. 

The almighty has immense powers. He, who manages the whole universe; he, who raised Jesus from the dead, surely hears our prayers. He gives us the courage to face our darkest fears and endure the sharpest pains. Our prayer for loved ones reaches him. He helps them to get out of the turbulent times. So, prayers are always what keep us close to the almighty.

We live in strangely unsure times. The uncertainty of everything can keep you on your toes all the time. If you need prayers for you or your loved one’s inner peace, strength, and endurance, we have compiled a list here. Hope it helps you in having the calmness you desire.

Prayer for healing from physical pain

Exodus 15:26

And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

Dear god. You are the supreme power. You have the power to raise the dead. We pray to you for the wellness and health of our loved ones. Their spirit needs reaffirmation, their body pain needs to go away and they need to get back to their cheerful healthy selves. Please relieve them of their sufferings. We know that you alone have the power to take that away. Have mercy on them, please.

Prayers for the lord’s compassion and concern

Exodus 3:7

The Lord said, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering.

Prayers for god’s mercy to heal

Psalm 51:1

For the director of music. A psalm of David. When the prophet Nathan came to him after David had committed adultery with Bathsheba.

    according to your unfailing love;

according to your great compassion

    blot out my transgressions.

Dear god. You are the most merciful. We know you devised human suffering to be an integral part of human existence. But still, we ask for your mercy. Shower us with your blessings and lessen our heartaches, heartbreaks, weakness, and despair.

Prayer for perseverance

When you pass through the waters,

    I will be with you;

and when you pass through the rivers,

    they will not sweep over you.

When you walk through the fire,

    you will not be burned;

    the flames will not set you ablaze.

Dear god. You are the source of strength for us. Please give us the strength to persevere in this tough time. We only need you to walk with us and be by our side. That is our only wish and need.

Prayer for encouragement

Prayer during illness

Romans 5:1

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Dear almighty god. Please grant us and our loved ones, the ultimate peace. The peace in our hearts that every decision of yours is best for us. We might not see it at the very instance, but you always think of the very best for us. Any painful instance is just a fleeting moment, and your will is the ultimate truth.

Prayer for freedom from stress

Mathew 6:26-27

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

Dear lord. We know if you can take care of the food of the sparrows in the field, you are there for us. We thank you for your gifts and trust you with all our hearts. You are out there looking for us and you will surely take these worries away.

Prayer for rest to heal and recover
