A Prayer for Healing
A PRAYER FOR
H E A L I NG
Lord, You see our hearts;
we are aching,
wishing we could grant
thousands of miracles
for those facing more suffering
than we have ever known.
We know this is an imperfect world,
but in You, many things will be
made whole again;
we ask for miracles of healing,
big and small
for every inch of this world in need.
Buildings will crumple and houses will fall;
they will be rebuilt,
but only You can offer the true peace
that eases the deepest of pains.
We ask that You bring that peace, that comfort,
to the most broken of hearts in this world.
Let those who remain standing and able
be filled with inspiration and strength
to become a blessing in any way they can;
bless the donations pouring from around the world,
protect them against corruption,
and bring those funds exactly where they need to be.
Lord, You run to us, even when we’ve acted our worst;
how much more must You long to run to us,
when our worlds are literally torn apart?
We ask that You pour into the hearts and minds
of those we so ache for,
that healing embrace only You can give.

The Parable of the Lost Son: “So he got up and went to his father, but while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.” ~ Luke 15:20
