Prayers for Someone in Hospital: 15 Uplifting

Prayers for Someone in Hospital: 15 Uplifting

The Bible admonishes us to be alert and always pray for all the Lord’s people.

So, if you are here seeking prayers to intercede for a sick family member, friend, loved one, or generally, those ill,

I have created some incredible prayers for someone in hospital well suited to your intercession need.

Meanwhile, it’s important to note that you are fulfilling Scripture by praying for someone other than yourself.

Especially the sick who can’t possibly pray for themselves. God, who knows how to reward, will also raise men and women to stand in the gap for you in your own time of distress.

So, pray with a conviction for their healing and recovery, knowing the God you are calling upon will grant your petition. Also, He will, in turn, keep sicknesses and diseases away from you.
