Dear Lord, Place your healing hand today on all who need restoration of health.
Instill in them an unfailing trust that you are by their side in all trials and suffering.
Give to them confidence in your infinite love and compassion.
Lift their spirit, dispel their fears and worries, and lighten their burdens.
Heal their mind, body, and spirit.
Comfort their loved ones and provide them with strength to journey with those they love.
Give caregivers and health care workers the knowledge and skill to heal others.
Inspire them to demonstrate your love through their hearts and hands.
Lord, let those in need of healing be filled with patience and joy in your presence
as they wait for your healing touch.
May your will be done in their lives.
no hands but yours,
no feet but yours,
Yours are the eyes through which to look out
Christ’s compassion to the world
Yours are the feet with which he is to go about
Yours are the hands with which he is to bless men now.”
(attributed to Saint Teresa of Avila)
