Prayer To Watch Over Someone

A prayer for someone who is ill or who is feeling under the weather. May God keep you and may your spirit be comforted, so that you may recuperate.

Someone once said that the two greatest healers in our lives are prayer and a loving touch, both accompanied by a listening heart. For those who truly want to bless someone’s life, there is a prayer to watch over someone.

The Lord’s Prayer is certainly the most famous of all prayers. It was memorized and repeated by Jesus’ disciples, and eventually spread throughout the whole world.

God is faithful. He loves you, and he cares so deeply for your future, and he has a plan to bless you in ways you will never understand. Remember that you are never alone, even when it feels like it. Be bold in your prayers!

Prayer To Watch Over Someone

Father, I come to You today, bowing in my heart, asking for protection from the evil one. Lord, we are assailed moment by moment with images on television, the internet, books and newspapers that leave us vulnerable to sin of every kind. Surround us with Your divine hedge of protection. Encompass us round about with Your strength and Your might. Let all who take refuge in You be glad, let them ever sing for joy. And may You shelter us, that those who love Your name may exult in You. For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O LORD, You surround him favor as with a shield. (Psalm 5:11-12)

Lord, I ask that You protect our minds. Father, the mindset on the flesh is death, but the mindset on the Spirit is life and peace. (Romans 8:6) O God, set our minds on You. Let us not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our minds that we may prove what Your will is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2) Help us by the power of Your Spirit to think on whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything is worthy of praise, let our minds dwell on these things. (Philippians 4:8)
