Prayer for healing

Boston images

God our Healer,
you have already healed us in many ways–
and still we know our need for healing.

We thank you for the healing we have received:
for relationships, now mended by your healing touch,
for bodies racked with pain, now made free,
for emotions once crippling us, finally restored by love.

At the same time, we come to you for healing
for wounds that have injured our spirits
and continue to stab us,
for words said to us, perhaps even unknowingly,
that have killed our joy,
for actions against us and those we love,
that have nearly crushed our breath from us.

For all this and much more–we need your healing touch. Amen.

–Bj Leichty, Words for Worship 2, (Herald Press, 2009)
