Some storms hit us without warning, and they can be devastating, to be sure. But when we see the storms looming, coming at us, even before we feel their physical effects, we can sense our stress mounting. Here is a prayer for when you know you are facing a health “storm,” when you see it coming, and before it actually hits:

Oh, Lord, most loving and gracious Father,

the storm has not hit me, yet,

but I already feel my body tensing,

my heart aching,

my soul fearful.

Please, Father, wrap your love and comfort around me.

Cover my worry with your peace.

Help me to focus on the strength I will need,

the resolve and the wisdom,

to weather this storm.

For I know that you will bring me through,

Lord.

And you will be with me all the way.

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen.
