Prayer, day 1913: For Healing

Merciful One,
we lift up our hearts to the glory of your radiant love,
and give praise that we dwell in your presence forever.

Lord Jesus,
in your ministry among us you were a healer:
may we reach out to you now to heal us.
Heal us of our anger and thirst for vengeance,
     remembering all the times we ourselves have received mercy.
Heal our wounded spirits,
     that the pain of the past does not cripple us today.
Heal our mourning hearts,
     as we remember those who have died and what they meant for us.
Heal us of our distracted ways,
     that we may remember your mercy
and dwell in your presence in each moment.

O Guardian of Our Souls,
seal us as your own forever,
and renew and revive our strength
through your compassion,
especially for those for whom we now pray.
