Litany for then Sick and Suffering

We pray for those in need of healing this day:

 
Lord Jesus, you healed all who came to you in faith and 
sent forth your disciples to preach the Gospel and heal the sick:
We praise and thank you, O God!.

 
God of grace, you nurture us with a love deeper than we know, 
and your will for us is healing and salvation;
We praise and thank you, O God.

 
God of love, you enter into our lives, our pain and our brokenness, 
and you stretch out your healing hands to us wherever we are;
We praise and thank you, O God.

 
Touch and heal our hearts burdened by anguish, despair and isolation, 
and set us free through your love;
Hear us, and make us whole.

 
Give patience, courage, and faith to all who are disabled by injury or sickness;
Hear us, and make us whole.

Grant your strengthening presence to all who are about to undergo an operation;
Hear us, and make us whole
 
Sustain those who face long illness, bearing them up on the wings of faith and courage;
Hear us, and make us whole.

 
Comfort and relieve those who endure continual pain, 
pouring upon them the sweet balm of your spirit;
Hear us, and make us whole.

 
Grant us the refreshment of quiet sleep;
Hear us, and make us whole.

 
Give your wisdom in ample measure to doctors and nurses, 
that with knowledge, skill, and patience they may minister to the sick;
Hear us, and make us whole.

 
Guide all who search for the causes of sickness and disease;
Hear us, and make us whole.

 
Break the bonds of our imprisonment to fear, compulsion, and addiction;
Hear us, and make us whole.

 
Give us liberty from old hurts and painful memories;
Come with your healing power, O God.

 
Fill us with peace in our grief from separation and loss;
Come with your healing power, O God.
 

Work through all who share in your ministry of healing, 
and renew us in compassion and strength;
Come with your healing power, O God.

 
God of Strength, you fill us with your presence and 
send us forth in love and healing among those we meet;
We praise and thank you, O God.

 
Touch and soothe our bodies 
suffering from sickness, injury, and disability, and make us whole again;
Hear us, and make us whole.

 
Touch and heal our minds from darkness, confusion, and doubt, 
and fill them with your light;
Come with your healing power, O God.
