Loving God, we know that you sustain life in all creatures and are truly Love beyond our understanding. Because you know all things, you can do all things and you promise goodness to all who hope in you. With faith in this promise, we ask that you fill our lives with the grace of healing. Help us to find healing of our bodies, minds, emotions and spirits. Touch us now where we are hurting most. Whatever is broken in us, send your Holy Spirit to repair it and give us courage to face any suffering.

Let the grace of your divine love flow and reach the inner recesses of our being. Comfort all those in pain and anguish. Root out all unresolved hurts, resentments, fears and feelings of despair and frustration. Heal all painful memories and repercussions of traumatic experiences. Remove any injustice or obstacle to care that exist in our communities.

Father, most holy, form us all as healers for each other. Provide us the knowledge and stamina to walk with those whose health is failing. As your Son, Jesus, reached out and touched the blind, lame, and leper, fill us with that same love, peace, joy, kindness and generosity. Help us to realize the deeper meaning of ourselves as embodied spirits who desire to be closer to you.

And with eyes of faith, O Lord, help us see the human body as a temple of your Holy Spirit so that we might make choices that give honor and glory to you in our daily living. Amen.
