Gathered together on this page are several uplifting prayers which ask for God's healing and restoration on those who have been sick. There is a beautiful prayer for a speedy recovery ("Come Holy Spirit"), a short prayer for successful surgery, a comforting image of Psalm 23 for meditation or for sending to an ill friend or loved one, and a traditional Episcopal prayer to say for an operation.
Come Holy Spirit(a prayer for speedy recovery after surgery)
Come Holy Spirit, come and fill my friend with healing power.
As they convalesce, entwine their days with rest, with hope, with gentle joy
And restoration hour by hour.
Come Holy Spirit, come and touch
My friend with grace and love.
As they find new strength, uplift each moment fresh with rising faith
And bright new vision, from above.
Come Holy Spirit, come and bless my friend with joy and health
As they wait in prayer, hold them close and safe,
Within your embrace and riches bright with kingdom wealth.
Come Holy Spirit, Come!
