When we are sick or in ill health, we first depend on the Doctors for treatment that will save our lives. But it is only God that can extend our lives.
Mighty God, we know that you are the only one with the power to save lives and you have given the Doctors the ability to do some of your work and for that, I give you thanks.
It is undeniable that God and he alone holds power to your life as the Bible reminds us that God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.[Psalm 62:11]

Everlasting Father, we thank you for life you have given us, and today we pray that during this time of illness you will extend my life if it is thy will that it should be, done. I know that without your grace I would not be here and during this challenging time, I asked that you give my family the strength they need to understand the reasons that I am going through this illness.
Mighty God, everyone was considered in the saving of life. Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee; according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those that are appointed to die — [Psalm 79:11].
Through Jesus Christ, You save our lives and although he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.[2 Corinthians 13:4].
