A Prayer for Healing


God,
Make today a healing day
When hearts are lifted up and hope abounds
When cells respond to Your Loving Touch and organs are strengthened by Your Song


God,
Make today a healing day
When Your Compassion directs the actions of care givers
When Your Courage rises in each one as they advocate for the helpless


God,
Make today a healing day
When the minds of researches are quickened by Your Spirit
When the wealthy generously support new hopes and dreams


God,
Make today a healing day
When weights are lifted from the backs of families
When chains of dis-ease are snapped by Your Word and spirits are set free


God,
Make today a healing day
When evil is commanded to stand down
When the wounded are washed in tenderness and the injured dressed in bright grace


God,
Make today a healing day
When crops grow strong and rivers run clear
When starving bodies are nourished and the thirsty are satisfied


God,
Make today a healing day
When the old ones pass in peace
When Your Arms of Mercy restore each one to a child at play


God,
Make today a healing day
When You do, our voices will respond in laughter and gladness and praise
When You do, our songs will lift up Your Name and our bodies will bow in thanks!


These prayers were first prayed by Rev. Pamela Short for the People of Prayer of the Tontogany Presbyterian Church.

From Ambrose of Milan (340–397)
You are medicine for me when I am sick.
You are my strength when I need help.
You are life itself when I fear death.
You are the way when I long for heaven.
You are light when all is dark.
You are my food when I need nourishment! Amen. text. Double click here to edit and add your own text.
