Prayer for Healing

Loving God,

In the light of so much suffering we come before you as your hurting people in need of healing.

Knowing we are a Church of saints and sinners, we acknowledge our own sinfulness and ask forgiveness for the times we have injured or neglected others.

Knowing we are called to holiness, we trust you to lead us on our journey to be a renewed Church for with you all things are possible.

Christ Jesus, continue to walk among us as we leave. Embrace us with healing. Grace us with reconciliation. Empower us to love as you love, because healing, reconciliation, and love are beyond our human capacity alone.

Spirit of God, seize our hearts. Awaken us to gratitude and newness of life.
