A Prayer for Healing

And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up.
James 5:15a

Dear Father in Heaven,
Today I ask again mercy and healing for my Uncle Chuck who is in the ICU with a severe case of pneumonia. I pray that You would cause the fluid in his lungs to drain away and the infection to cease. I pray strength for my dear Aunt Mary as she struggles to keep up with daily tasks and commitments as well as being by her husband's side. I pray for my cousins who find it so difficult to watch their father struggle with this illness. I pray for my mom who has already suffered incredible loss this past year and ask that you would spare her only brother. And, Lord, I thank you for my wonderful uncle, his love for You, and his love for all of us as well.
