“Dear Heavenly Father,
I have been experiencing back pain that is only getting worse with time. I know that you are a good God and you want your children to enjoy good things and a healthy body is a basic joy that I have taken for granted.
Now that my health is not in it’s best state, I realize how blessed I was when I was living pain-free. Everyday is a challenge for me not only physically but also mentally and spiritually.
I admit that I have accepted this pain for a long time, not taken care of myself like I should have, and then got angry with you because of it. Lord, all those things are sinful mindsets and they will not bring healing or blessing into my life or body. I confess them to you, and I ask that you reverse the negative words I have spoken about my body, health and healing and about the God that can deliver me from all of my misery.
Lord, I bow on my knees and I worship you for all that you have blessed me with. I believe I have come to this place in my life so I can do just that. Sometimes it takes a lot and with me, I guess this is what it took. How shameful for it to take this kind of pain to praise and bless the God who is so good to me.
Lord, as you are healing my body, renew my mind and my heart to be always thanking and praising you. Help me to see the blessings that are right in front of me and the blessings weaved in my life circumstances that I have never noticed before.
Have mercy on me and forgive me. In your word, you said that Envy is rottenness to the bones. I give my envy of the health and vibrancy of others to you. I know that being jealous or envious will never get me closer to being blessed. I admit that these sins I have harbored in my heart, and I confess them to you.
Lord, as I sleep each night, renew my mind, restore my bones, straighten my back, align my spine, fill my disks with the cartilage that is missing and restore my attitude to be one that is in agreement with your word and in agreement with the healing you desire for me.
As I am healing, help my attitude to continue to sing your praises, no matter how I feel. Help me to treat my body with respect and wisdom. Give me the patience I need to respectfully move with the temporary limitations placed upon it, to feed it with nourishing food that will build up my immune system to properly repair itself and heal, give me the common-sense I need to avoid activities that I enjoy that will not be beneficial at this time of my healing.
As I am noticing the fragility of my failing body, help me to realize my dependence on you. I need you, Lord more than I ever have admitted in the past, I want to grow and learn from this not become a bitter person.
I thank you for your mercy, for the health that I do have and for providing me with the nourishment of your word, the bread of life. I will continue to speak it over my bones, cartilage, ligaments and muscles. In Jesus’ precious name, Jehovah-Rappha heal me, mind body and spirit, Amen.”
