Prayer 1121- for repentance, healing, and transformation
Merciful God, look with compassion upon all your people, and forgive us our sins, especially the casual or convenient evil done by us and done in our name. May we turn our faces toward the light of your countenance, and give you thanks and praise for all our blessings.
Lord Jesus, make us brave enough to seek healing for our wounds, trusting in You and the promise that love heals when we let it in. Transformed by the blessing of your healing love, Lord Christ, let us endeavor to treat each other with kindness, compassion, and honor. Fill our mouths with your testimony and truth, and transform our words into deeds of witness in all we do.
We pray to You, O Holy One, for our brothers and sisters in need, anxiety, or trouble, especially those we now name.
