PRAYER FOR HEALING

Lady and Lord of Creation you formed my being in the beginning.

You knit me together in my mother’s womb.

You gave the breath of life to my flesh and blood.

 

Renew me this day in Your love.

Let Your faith in Your Creation support my life.

Let my journey by Your light.

Give me hope to sustain me.

 

Make a mantle from these threads as sign of your gift of healing.

When I am weary, may it warm me.

When I begin to lose hope, may it surround me.

When I am in pain in body or spirit may Your care encircle me.

 

Mother and Father of beginnings support our bodies and spirits.

Mother and Father of all that surrounds us heal our bodies and spirits.

Mother and Father of all that is to come,

     help us to become all we should be.

 

If we have family who are ill, help us support them.

If we have friends who grieve help us comfort them.

Let our prayers go out for those we know and

Those whose faces we do not see where ever they may be.

 

So may it be, now and forever.

 

Inspired by a healing prayer in Knitting into the Mystery.

I'm not sure which part started my tears, but it's there somewhere.  But they're good tears.
