A prayer against disease

Jehovah-Rapha,  the God who Heals, I ask for your blessing and healing over my friend who's sick. Disease is such a hard thing to understand. (Click here for "Prayer for a sick child.") I know you're a Healer and the Great Physician, so you don't delight in our pain and illness. I know you use it to draw people to yourself. Use my friend's illness. Use my friend's family.

I hope you're glorified

Dear God, I hope you're glorified by my life, with the choices that I make every day that don't seem important in the present, but perhaps they are in the long-run. I hope that doing housework, schoolwork, career work, and relationships glorify you during all the little unseen moments, when I'm kind in spite of being annoyed, careful in spite of being tired, righteous when nobody's looking. May you find pleasure in my joy and return tender mercies for my failings, and I pray for all of it to bring you the glory you deserve. Your glory shines over all the earth! In Jesus' wonderful name, Amen.
