Words Of Encouragement
During these tough times when you’re tempted to think that God is far from you, remember that He promises to never leave.
In Isaiah 43:2, His Word declares that He is with us through the tough times, and that neither water nor fire can ever consume us.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned, and the flame will not scorch you. Isaiah 43:2
I want you to recall, even in the midst of the pain, the Word of God in Isaiah 53:5. Jesus Christ paid the price for our total healing and well-being, and His wounds make us whole.
But he was pierced for our transgressions. He was crushed for our iniquities. The punishment that brought our peace was on him; and by his wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53:5
Psalm 41:3 declares that the Lord sustains us in the face of illness and restores us to complete health.
God is surely for you, so tell me, who can succeed against you?
Romans 8:31-32 assures us that the One Who loved us to the point of sacrificing His Son in order to make us a part of His Family has only good things for us.
31 What then shall we say about these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who didn’t spare his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how would he not also with him freely give us all things? Romans 8:31-32
And no amount of illness or pain can change that.
Rest in this knowledge.
Prayer For Sister In Hospital
I thank You for Your great love for my sister, and Your infinite mercy that has seen her through the years to this point of her life.
Thank You for the abundance of verve and vigor that she has enjoyed in her life. I’m grateful, dear God, and so is she.
Lord, through every single battle we face while we are still here on Earth, we know that You are with us.
And that is why we are not afraid of the enemy and his works. You have told us that the devil is a thief, a murderer and a destroyer, but in the very same sentence, You reassure us of the life that we can find in You alone.
We reach into that life now.
As Your Word declares in Jeremiah 30:17, You restore health to Your people and heal every wound. Lord, I ask that this becomes the testimony of Your daughter, today.
Lord, I ask that You remind her of Your presence that is with her every single moment of the day.
I ask that whenever she feels abandoned and afraid, she remembers that she is never alone.
Lord, teach her to hold unto Your promise in Romans 8: 35-37 that nothing can separate her from Your love.
I thank You, Lord, for providing people to look after her.
I ask that You endow the doctors and the entire medical team with a fresh wisdom and compassion to care for her, and I also reach out in prayer to every person suffering from one ailment or the other, admitted at the hospital.
I ask that You touch them with Your healing power and give them Your rest as promised in Matthew 11:28.
Let Your healing Word remain central in my sister’s heart and mind, so that she faces each day with courage and hope.
May laughter never cease from her lips, even in the face of chaos and adversity.
Lord, I ask that You give her a testimony that will heal and transform other lives – that in accordance with Your Word in Romans 8:28, You work everything in her favor.
We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
I ask that You be glorified, even in this present affliction, because, like Paul declared in 2 Corinthians 12:9, Your strength is made perfect in weakness.
He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Most gladly therefore I will rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
And because You are able to do even more than we can imagine or fathom, we ask these things in the Name of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, the Messiah.
