Most times, our first instinct is to take our kids to the hospital for medical treatment when they are ill. No parents want to spend even a minute watching their child wallowing in pain and discomfort.

While many parents naturally seek medical help for their sick children, they often forget to seek God’s face for healing.

Hence, I took the liberty to provide “healing prayers for my son” in this article. If your son is ill, praying is one of the best forms of care you can give him.

Each of the prayers I have provided has a Bible verse attached. This is to ensure that when you pray, you will do so according to God’s word.
