Prayer for Healing



God, like a watchful shepherd, you care for us.

You make the earth yield healing herbs and medicines and give us the knowledge to learn of their power.

Your creative loves continues through the healing hands of doctors, pharmacists, and nurses.

Also, through the healing councel of priests, family, and friends. Bless all who suffer.

Our afflictions become a cross that burdens us with fear and uncertainity.

Cast out our fears and revive our faith.

Give us strength that we may be filled with hope.

Let the Holy Spirit come to our aid that we might live each day in the joy for which you have fashioned us.

Give us healing in body, soul, and spirit that we may be your servants in this world and enjoy the fullness of your presence in the life to come.

We make this prayer humbly, knowing that we cannot restrict or direct your saving grace.

We give joyful thanks for your compassion wherever we may find it.

We ask all of this in the name of Jesus who intercedes before you on our behalf.
