Romans 8:18 “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.”
Physical pain, weather chronic or short term, can be debilitating and stressful. Pain can distract you from work, family, and your hobbies leaving you feeling helpless or defeated. When medication isn’t enough, or it isn’t something you want to use, there is another way to help release some of the pain. Turn to God! Prayer can help you release some of the frustrations and depression associated with the pain. God wants you to turn to him when you need strength, and physical pain is no exception!
Here are seven prayers to get you through the pain you are feeling; so that you can see the glory that God has ahead of you. He has a plan for you.
Prayer for Reoccurring Pain
Lord, I feel worn down by reoccurring pain I have. It makes every small thing feel like a big deal. Please help me to manage this illness and continue to find time to rest and treat the pain. Most of all Lord please touch the area of discomfort and bring healing. Please flood the inflammation with warmth and bring the swelling down. Come release the muscles that are tight and bring your restoration. May my waking hours be restful and my sleep be peaceful.
I ask all this in the name of Jesus, my Savior and my friend.
Prayer for a Friend in Pain
I wish I could take away their pain. It is so hard to see them suffer and not know how to help. So I came before you God, our restorer, and our redeemer. I know that you took their pain upon yourself when you died on the cross. So I ask in your name for healing for them. Come now in the power of the Holy Spirit and restore this child of yours. I pray they no longer have to bear this weight on their shoulders. I pray that they also look to turn themselves to you during their time of struggling.
Prayer for Pain to Vanish
I know only you can help this pain vanish away. I plead for peace and serenity as I fight off the pain I am feeling. Send your hand down to me and fill me with your strength. I cannot take this pain any longer without your help! Release me from this hold and restore me. I trust in You to give me the strength to get through this. I pray that the pain will be gone! It will not hold me down because I have the Lord on my side.
Prayer for Accepting Help
Please fill me with trust to listen and work with my doctors, to believe that they have my best interest at heart, and give me strength to not take my frustrations out on them. Accepting help isn’t always my strong suit, and I come to You now asking for assistance during this time. I don’t know all the answers and I never will. You put people in my life and direct me to those who can help me. Please let me accept them and be healed from this pain. I know that you are working through them to help heal me. I pray that I remember that always.
Thank You Prayer
Thank you for this amazing, beautiful and strong body you have given me. I know my body is a temple designed by you. During this pain I am feeling, I will stay positive in knowing you have a plan for me, and I was given this body for a reason. No amount of pain will ever divert me away from you. I thank you for looking after me, and I lift up my gratitude as you wrap your healing arms around me. My body and mind are strong because I am a part of your team. I will always have the holy trinity working through me.
Prayer when You Need Strength
I simply cannot take this pain anymore. It is overcoming me like a powerful wave and taking all my energy to handle. Please anoint me with strength! I cannot get through this without you, and I turn to you in my time of need. I surrender myself to you. Please send your hands down to heal me! The smallest amount of movement is rendering me catatonic and I am feeling alone and helpless. I reach out to you today because I need comfort and a friend. I need rest. Nothing you lead me to is too hard for me to handle. I can get through this with the strength you give me.
In Jesus’ Name We Pray,
Prayer for Child’s Pain
It seems so unfair the pain and suffering I see my child in. As a parent, it is gut-wrenching to see even the slightest heartache or sadness from my precious little one. During this time, I ask that you place a healing hand on my child’s discomfort as well as my heart. I will work hard to remain strong and positive when in front of my child. They will not see me defeated or broken. I turn to you and ask that you lift her up.
In Jesus’ name,
Prayer for Trust
The pain seems to never ending. As I sit here waiting patiently for release, I can’t help but feel doubt and confusion. I want to banish these intrusive thoughts and instead be filled with your love! Help me to always trust in you. You have a plan for me and will heal this pain when the time is ready! I want to be overcome with the resilience to ward off the enemy in my time of pain. I ask for you to continue holding me as I work towards gaining undoubting trust in You.
Today, even though all may seem hopeless, you have a healer in God. Release all of your pain, frustrations, and anger into prayer and God will be listening. He hears your cry for help and will anoint you with strength and lend a healing hand to all those who come to him.
