Prayers for the Chronically Ill – Laughter

Part of learning to deal with a chronic illness is learning to laugh.

Today’s Bible Verse:

Proverbs 17:22 (KJV),  “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

What the verse means:

Our attitude is crucial when dealing with a chronic illness. The cheerfulness of mind does good like a medicine for the body. Our attitude contributes to the restoration or preservation of bodily health and vigor.

Praying using the verses:

  1. Lord Jesus, help us to enjoy the funny things that happen in life.
  2. Heavenly Father, help us to take life one day at a time.
  3. God, help our family and friends to not dwell on the seriousness of the illness, but rather help us to live life to the fullest as we know You hold our future.
