Day Eleven: His Health

But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,'
declares the Lord,
'because you are called an outcast,
Zion for whom no one cares.'
- Jeremiah 30:17
Lord, I pray for Your healing touch on my husband. Make every part of his body function the way You designed it to. Wherever there is anything out of balance, set it in perfect working order. Heal him of any disease, illness, injury, infirmity, or weakness. Strengthen his body to successfully endure his workload, and when he sleeps may he wake up completely rested, rejuvenated and refreshed. Give him a strong heart that doesn't fail. I don't want him to have heart failure at any time.
I pray that he will have the desire to take care of his body, to eat the kind of food that brings health, to get regular exercise, and to avoid anything that would be harmful to him. Help him to understand that his body is Your temple and he should care for it as such (I Corinthians 3:16). I pray that he will present it as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to You (Romans 12:1).
When he is ill, I pray You will sustain him and heal him. Fill him with Your joy and give him strength. Specifically, I pray for his stress fractures (insert your concern there). Give him faith to say, " 'O Lord my God, I cried out to You, and You healed me' [Psalm 30:2]. Thank You, Lord that You are my Healer!" I pray that my husband will live a long and healthy life and when death does come, may it be accompanied by peace and not unbearable suffering and agony. Thank You, Lord, that You will be there to welcome him into Your presence, not a moment before Your appointed hour.* In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all His benefits:
who forgives all your iniquities,
and heals all your diseases.
- Psalm 103:2-3
Your light shall break forth like the morning,
your healing shall spring forth speedily,
and your righteousness shall go before you;
the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
- Isaiah 58:8
I will heal them and reveal to them
the abundance of peace and truth.
Jeremiah 33:6
