Family not only gives us a sense of belonging and purpose but also the necessary support to navigate through this journey called life. We may have our differences, but we sustain ourselves with the love of family. A famous philosopher once said ‘the family is one of nature’s masterpieces’ and I couldn’t agree more.
Family is very important, and that’s why it’s very heart-wrenching to see your loved one suffering from physical or mental illness. While it’s easy to get overwhelmed and feel hopeless that things will never get better, remember you’re not alone in this. There’s a God in heaven who knows and hears everything. The BEST option is to go to Him in prayer. Surrender your brother’s health onto him and let Him do what only He can do.
Whether the battle is physical or mental, these prayers for my brother to get well soon will give you, your brother and everyone associated with him strength, hope and comfort.
