Prayer Quotes for the Sick and the Disappointed

They say that prayer opens door and is a divine connection with God. We should always communicate with the Lord during good and bad times. Try these quotes when sick or when you feel hurt, and disappointed. Use prayer everyday, it is your weapon, your shield, and a tool from above.  Author  Corrie Ten Boom posed the question on the topic of faith. “Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?” Make it your steering wheel.

Love Language

“Sometimes when your child talks, your friends cannot understand what he says; but the mother understands very well. So if our prayer comes from the heart, God understands our language.” - DL Moody

Dull the Pain

Heal Every Disease

"And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction."– Book of Matthew

Prayer for the Brokenhearted

“O God, whose love restores the brokenhearted of this world: pour out your love, we beseech you, upon those who feel lonely, abandoned, or unloved. Strengthen their hope to meet the days ahead; give them the courage to form life-giving friendships; and bless them with the joy of your eternal peace. Amen.” - Vienna Cobb Anderson

Serenity Prayer

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him forever in the next.”

Guide Me

“Lord, I come before you today in need of your healing hand. In you all things are possible. Hold my heart within yours, and renew my mind, body, and soul. I am lost, but I am singing. You gave us life, and you also give us the gift of infinite joy. Give me the strength to move forward on the path you've laid out for me. Guide me towards better health, and give me the wisdom to identify those you've placed around me to help me get better In your name I pray, Amen.”
