Prayer for Healing

Got this special prayer from CrossWalk.com and I wept while praying. This is for all who is suffering and desperately need help and healing. Let’s believe in Him. ☝️

God, you know me so well.

You created me. You know the number of hairs on my head, and you even know the thoughts conceived in my heart before I ever vocalize them. You’ve told us to come to you and ask for every need of life. You are the God who heals, and you have the final word on my destiny, the number of years I’ll live and serve you on earth.

I’m coming to you today as your child, longing to hear from you and asking for your divine healing. There’s so much I don’t understand about life. But I do know that with one touch, one word, you can make me whole. Please forgive me of my sins, cleanse me of my unrighteousness, and begin your healing from the inside out.

I don’t always know what your will is Lord, especially in times like now, when I desperately seek your face. I offer you no promises, no bargains, no deals to exchange for my health. I simply bow my heart before you to tell you the desire of my heart: that I want to spend as many years as I can loving you here, loving others, and wanting to become more like you. However you choose to accomplish that is up to you—and okay with me. If you use doctors to provide healing, give them wisdom to know what to do. Regardless of how you accomplish it, the healing you give is always miraculous. And you deserve all the praise.

Amen

Miracles do exist

After my father passed away, challenging and heavy events unfurled one after another. My in-laws took turns in hospitalization. And it all began when my mom-in-law was prescribed with a sulfa-base medicine that caused her a severe allergic reaction and life-threatening Steven Johnson Syndrome. This doctor who heedlessly gave her the wrong medicine is from a premier hospital here in Cebu, (& to avoid any legal issues) I rather not mention.

Mortality rate is high for this medicine-induced illness especially for patients above 80. 

After a week of inadequate care & nightmare in that hospital, we transferred her to Chong Hua. Praying so hard for me to find great doctors for mom, gracefully I was heard. A few weeks after she was discharged.

My father-in-law was also admitted last month. His ailment worsen by various complications. We started with 2 doctors until they reached 10-11 specialists, including surgeons who did the central line (intra-jugular line) and pulmonary support system.

I promised my husband Erik, that I would not stop until his dad gets out of critical condition. And to do everything I could to save his life, see him get well. Because these are the things I was unable to do with my dad. Things happened so quickly that when my dad entered ER his heart was beating faintly. I wasn’t given a chance to say goodbye nor to do anything and that devastated me. His death changed me. Remembering so clearly the pain of losing a father, that even up to this day I have not fully recovered.

So with Erik’s Dad (my in-law) it was exasperating and emotionally draining, praying fervently with every procedure, every transfer from ICCU to ICU. Dealt each struggle from carbon dioxide psychosis to finding blood for his transfusion.

Like mom, we could have lost him… But God with His divine healing powers intervened.

Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. – James 5: 14-15

“Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road. – Mark 10:52

Paying tribute to the following heroes who saved my in laws and whom God used to manifest His glory and healing grace (in no particular order);

Thank you to all nurses and aids in the 10th floor and ICU. And for all those I may have missed posting, may God bless you in return for your kindness and help.

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am in their midst.” – Matthew 18:20

Many thanks to all who have prayed & offered masses for my in-laws. The private nurses and caregivers I hired and God used as well to save their lives.

These miracles I proclaim today is for all to know God’s unfathomable love and mercy.

All glory to God Almighty!

 

with love,

Prayer before sleep

Today is one of the most exhausting days of my life. All I do, I offer them to God. He gives me strength to fulfill my duties, my obligations.

I’m sharing this beautiful prayer before sleep.
Prayer before sleep.

Dear God, as I lay me down to sleep, relax the tension of my body. 

Calm the restlessness of my mind; still the thoughts which worry and perplex me. 

Help me to rest myself and all my problems in your strong & loving arms.

Let your Spirit speak to my mind and heart while I’m asleep, so that when I wake in the morning, I may find that I have received in the nighttime, light for my way, strength for my tasks, peace for my worries, forgiveness for my sins. 

Grant me sleep tonight and tomorrow power to live. 

Amen 🙏🏼
