Good health is one thing that we all pray for and constantly work towards. Going to the gym, eating right, and drinking enough water in a day are all things we do to make sure we don’t get sick.
But every once in a while, we get sick and need healing. No matter how good you take care of yourself, sickness is a part of life and something as simple as the flu can get you feeling helpless and sad.
But no matter what happens, one thing you can always be certain of is that you serve a living God, a God who heals all kinds of diseases and so you can and should always pray to Him for healing and strength.
