Healing Body, Mind, and Spirit
Take a moment to refresh, refocus, and refine your faith.
Great Physician, I ask your hand of comfort rest on those trapped in ailing bodies. Those undergoing long-term and difficult treatments, those suffering alone, those feeling ready to give up, these, Lord, I uplift to your merciful care. Please heal the root causes of their illnesses and ease away their symptoms, but also bring peace and healing to their spirits. You have set eternity in our temporal bodies, and the strain between the two can pull us thin. Help us all, but especially those struggling in mind, body, and spirit, to orient our whole selves toward you and rest in your good, pleasing, and perfect will. Amen.
Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
