A Catholic priest once said to me,
"...And when you can’t pray, remember that the Church is praying for you."
This meant a lot to me. In times when I felt very alone, or when I didn't feel I had the faith to say a prayer for healing, I thought of his words and they brought me comfort.
churches, synagogues, temples and mosques around the world, and in spiritual
settings of all kinds, people are praying
"God please bless the whole of human kind".
This includes you.
"God please bless all those who are sick or suffering".
This prayer for healing includes you.
You don't have to pray alone. Just by being here, you are already taking the wonderful step of reaching out for help.

Sometimes it can be easier to pray for someone than for yourself. It is also a good way to remind yourself that others are praying for you, unless of course you are the only one doing it, which is unlikely :-)
If you know how to pray to God you have an important job to do.
And if you are setting out to learn how to pray, even during your most difficult times, then you are doing something wonderful.
If you find it hard to know how to pray and you know of someone who prays, then ask them to pray for you.
A prayer of agreement for healing works whether you hear it or not. But if the person is willing, ask them to pray with you as well as for you.When someone prays for you in your presence, it reminds you of their love for you, and strengthens your own commitment to prayer.
And, who knows, their faith and their words may remind you that you too know how to pray to God.
I signed up with an organisation that said a prayer for healing for me at set times, and asked me to join in (the Seekers - a UK ministry). It was difficult to find the discipline to pray at set times, but I couldn't ask them to do something I wasn't doing myself, so I made the effort. It really strengthened my prayer life.
If you are researching this topic on behalf of a loved one who seems too ill to pray, then thank you for your love. And remember, your prayers for those you love are extremely powerful.
