When we are in good health, we should never forget to pray for the sick and those suffering.
Good health is a true blessing, but it is tempting to forget the suffering that the sick endure during such a time. It is simply not something that comes to mind. Whatever our situation might be, we should pause for a few moments each day to pray for the sick.
Prayers help, and when we aren’t medical professionals, sometimes prayers are the only help we can offer.
Here is a short prayer from the Golden Manual to pray for the sick, asking God to restore them to total health.
Short Prayer for the Sick
Heal your servants, O Lord, who are sick, and who put their trust in you.
Send them help, O Lord, and comfort them from your holy place.
O almighty and everlasting God, hear us on behalf of your servants who are sick;
for whom we humbly beg the help of your mercy;
that, their health being restored to them, they may render thanks to you.
