Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior, You became man and died on the cross for our salvation. You healed people of sickness and affliction through Your love and compassion. Visit me, Lord and grant me strength to bear this sickness with which I am afflicted, with patience, submission to Your will and trust in Your loving care. I pray that You will bless the means used for my recovery and those who administer them. Grant that my sickness may be to my spiritual benefit and that I may live the rest of my life more faithfully according to Your will. For You are the source of life and healing and to You I give praise and glory, now and forever. Amen.
******** PSALM 5 - PRAYER FOR DIVINE HELP:******
Listen to my words, O Lord,
Attend to my complaint;
Be attentive to the voice of my appeal,
O my King and my God!
For to you will I pray, O Lord.
At dawn, You shall listen to my voice;
At down I will stand at your sevice
And look up.
For You are not a God pleased with iniquity,
Neither shall the evil-doer dwell with You;
Nor shall transgressors stand before your sight:
You loathe all those who work iniquity.
You will destroy all those who speak lies:
The Lord abhors all men of blood and deceit.
But I, in the abundance of your love
Will have access to your dwelling place:
Before your holy temple I will worship
In the fear of You.
O Lord, be my guide in your justice:
Because of my foes, clear my path before You.
Indeed, in their mouth there is no truth,
Their heart is vain;
Their throat is but a gaping tomb,
Their words deceive.
Judge them, O God,
Let them founder in their evil plots.
Because of their many crimes, cast them out
For they have risen against You, the Lord.
And all those who trust in You shall rejoice:
They shall feast forevermore,
And You shall dwell among them
And all who love your Name shall be glad,
For You bless the just man, O Lord:
You have covered us as with a shield of grace.
** ** **PSALM 24 - PRAYER FOR GUIDANCE AND HELP:****
To You, O Lord, I have lifted up my soul;
O my God, I have trusted in You:
Let me not be put to shame for ever.
Let not my enemies laugh at me:
Of all those who seek You, none will be shamed.
Let shame befall the wanton transgressors.
Make known to me your ways, O Lord,
Show me your paths;
Guide me in your truth and teach me
For You are my God and Savior
And I have waited for You all the day.
Remember your tender mercies, O Lord,
And your love that are from all ages;
The sins of my youth and my failures
Remember me in your love, O Lord,
Because of your kindness.
Kind and true is the Lord:
He will set the wayward aright.
He will give good judgment to the meek,
He will teach the meek his ways.
All the ways of the Lord are mercy and truth
To those who seek his covenant
And his revelation.
For the sake of your Name, O Lord,
Forgive also my sin for it is great.
Be there a man who fears the Lord,
Him the Lord will teach
In the way he has chosen.
His soul shall dwell in prosperity
And his seed shall inherit the land.
The Lord is the might of those who fear Him,
And He will reveal his covenant to them.
My eyes are always upon the Lord,
For He will loose my feet from the snare.
Look upon me and have mercy on me,
For I am lonely and destitute.
The troubles of my heart are multiplied:
Deliver me from my straits.
Behold my afflictions and my pain
And forgive all my sins;
Behold my enemies, they have grown in number
And have hated me with unfair hatred.
Preserve my soul and deliver me
That I may not be shamed, for I trusted in You.
The blameless and righteous stood with me
Because I waited for You, O Lord.
Deliver Israel, O Lord,
Of all his afflictions!****
