Healing Prayer: Our Bodies’ Intricate Design

I’ll be posting sporadically in February while I’m off work recuperating from surgery. (Nothing serious.) During my Sabbath recovery time at home, I hope to have daily prayer at 6 p.m. each evening in February.

I’ll be using the daily gospel reading and the prayer below and invite you to “join” me (through the Holy Spirit internet) each evening.

Healing Prayer

Blessed are You, God of All Creation,
who has made our bodies in wisdom.
It is You who created openings and arteries,
glands and organs, bone and blood,
marvelous in structure, intricate in design.
Should one part be blocked or fail to function
it is difficult for us to praise You properly,
difficult for us to serve Your people with humility.
Wondrous Fashioner and Sustainer of life,
Source of our health and our strength,
bring complete healing to all of our wounds.
You who blessed our ancestors and who
gave healing power to Jesus, send your angels
to accompany [insert names here] and all who are
sick. Let the healing river flow over and
through them. Let the leaves from the Tree
of Life—the tree with medicine for the healing
of nations—fall gently upon them.
May the occasion of their healing
be an opportunity for all of us to be healed,
so that we might more properly praise You.
In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

  1. Hello Dear One….
    Just finished my evening prayer, in harmony with the rhythm of your own time at dusk, sending love and healing energy as your body recoups and regenerates. How “in sync” is Nature’s timing with your own need to stop for a bit, sending Her blanket of snow to “cover” you (and all your neighbors!) while you rest.

    Be All Better Very Soon.
    much love,

  2. Wonderful idea, sister. I’ll join you (6 pm my time!) for your healing, and for all the people I’m meeting here who need it as well. Be strong, as you always are.
