5) Short prayer for healing and recovery for a child

For your child, this is a prayer to make. When your son or daughter is sick, prayer is as important as medical attention.

Remind God of His words concerning children and invite Him into the situation. He will help your child to get healthy soon and stronger than ever.

This is a special type of healing prayer.
Whenever you are about to make this prayer, ensure you include bible verses and references. This is how to keep your mind focused.
Anytime you use bible verses, extra spiritual energy is added to the prayer, which brings the desired results faster than expected.
I like to finish this prayer with James 5:14-15:
