6 Good Prayers for the Terminally Ill

In times of suffering from a terminal illness, looking to the Lord is the best way to seek comfort and spiritual healing. Here are some great prayers for the terminally ill that may help to offer peace in a very difficult time.

Calmness Prayer
Lord Jesus, we come before you today asking you to bring calmness to our loved ones who are terminally ill. Remind them of your love as they go through this challenging time. Please help them to be faithful to the end.  Remove anything that will bring fear and uncertainty in their hearts. As they fight this battle, remind them that they’re not alone. You’re holding them in the palm of your hand. When the time comes for them to depart from this world, usher them into your presence so that they can enjoy your glory.  In Jesus’ name, we believe and pray, Amen.

Peace of Mind Prayer
Dear God, thank you for your everlasting love. Thank you for the life of our loved one that is going through a tough time because of chronic illness. Give her the peace that surpasses all understanding in the midst of all this.  Please help her to focus on you alone, for it is only you that can heal her.  Lord, you resurrected Lazarus after four days; you will also revive her dead body organs. When the enemy attacks her with discouraging thoughts, remind her that nothing is too complicated for you. Help her to fight the good fight of faith until she gets out of this hospital. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Healing Prayer
King of Glory, the doctors have told me that I am terminally ill, and I only have a few weeks on earth. Lord, I am scared. You are my only source of hope. I stand on your word, which says I will not die young but live to declare the glorious works of the Lord. Fill me with your love and cast out fear from my heart. Heal me, and I shall be healed. Let your resurrection power rest in every cell and function of my body in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Abundance Prayer
Heavenly Father, my friend, has been diagnosed with a terminal disease. He has a few weeks left before he comes into your presence. Father, despite the shocking news, he is handling the situation peacefully and is happy about coming home. Lord, I know if it were not for you, he would not be this strong. Thank you for filling him with the perfect love that has cast out fear. May the time he has left be filled with love, care, peace, and joy. May he find happiness in nature and everything that you’ve created amid the pain. In Jesus’ name, we believe and pray, Amen.

Courage Prayer
God of Heaven’s Armies, my doctor has told me that I have a terminal disease, and I should get everything in order.  Dearest God, I choose your word over the doctor’s report, and I declare and decree that’s no weapon formed against me in the form of this disease will prosper. I refute the doctor’s report in the name of Jesus. Fill me with courage that I may stand firm in your promises and claim my healing that Jesus paid for at the scourging post. Bring into remembrance scriptures that will help me fight for what rightfully belongs to me.  In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Comfort Prayer
O Lord, bring comfort to our relative who is struggling with this chronic disease.  Remove any discomfort that comes from the treatment that he is getting. Holy Spirit, help him to remain positive throughout this ordeal. May he continue to be grateful for the things that you have given him even as his days on earth come to an end. Forgive him where he has gone wrong and help him to focus on you alone. Prepare him for your Kingdom and when he breathes his last usher him into your glorious presence. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.
