“Dear Heavenly Father,
I thank you for the body you have given me. I have not taken the time to do this in a long while, because I have been focusing on all of my health issues. Lord, you created my body and you know what is going on with it. I know that you are the only one that can take this pain away and work a healing miracle. I am asking for just that!
For years I have been suffering with the agony of inflammation in my small and large intestines. There may be some scarring on my bowel walls that is causing things to not move along like they should be.
Lord, much of the pain of this condition is activated by stress. I know that you are a God of peace and by giving into stressful my own thoughts, situations (and mind-sets) that I have opened myself up to experiencing more of this physical pain. I am coming to terms that my attitude has not helped my condition. Forgive me for not turning to you sooner, when my body was warning me that I was taking on more than I should have and not leaning on your peace to lead me through my choices.
In the name of Jesus, calm my mind as I learn how to trust your lead, Lord. I am so used to doing things my way and this has gotten me to where I am today. I am giving my anxiety, stress and pain to you. Help me to see what I can do to deal with life more efficiently and effectively. As I allow peace to flow through my body, the excess cortisol will flow out. This will relax my bowels and give me normal, healthy movement. The spastic cramping and diarrhea will no longer be a part of my everyday existence. In the name of Jesus, heal the inflamed tissue that is causing me to find blood in my stool. Lord, touch my Ulcers with your healing hand and dry up the areas that are irritated and causing me pain.
As I learn to read the word of God, let the power of your word touch my nausea, heal my skin disorders, give me energy and uplift my spirit.
Lead me to the right doctors and medical treatments that will help me take care of the fragile condition of my body. Give me the wisdom to follow sound advice and to steer away from treatments, people or advice that will be harmful to me. Help me to accept the help I need in medicines and lifestyle adjustments, and open up my mind to adapting to these changes. In the name of Jesus, bind the demonic forces of guilt, insecurity, a need to please and fear of lack to the spirit of balak. These are the very forces that have pressured me in the past. I will not give into them any longer, as that is not going to lead me to the health and well-being that God has planned for me.
Thank you, Lord for restoring my body to the balance that you created me to have. I will give you the glory when my body expresses the healing you have gifted to me. You are the God of miracles and you want the best for me. Help me to trust you on the days when I get a bout of pain or inflammation; as I know that focusing on you and your goodness will get me through that temporary discomfort. In Jesus’ name, thank you for healing me, Amen.”
