Litany for Healing

LITANY FOR HEALING                                                  Inspired by Jeremiah 17:14

Lord, the brokenness of the world is known to you.
No pain, suffering, grief, or regret is hidden from your eyes.
Heal us, O Lord, and we shall be healed;
Save us, and we shall be saved.

Our prayers are not merely for physical well-being,
But also for consolation, renewal, and hope.
Heal us, O Lord, and we shall be healed;
Save us, and we shall be saved.

We lift up our sisters and brothers, our enemies, strangers in our midst.
We pray for the nations of the earth and the whole of your creation.
Heal us, O Lord, and we shall be healed;
Save us, and we shall be saved.

We offer to you a sacrifice of open hearts and minds,
Prepared to be found by you in unexpected ways and places.
Heal us, O Lord, and we shall be healed;
Save us, and we shall be saved.

We do not dare to pray out of a sense of our own worth,
But our cries come from the depth of the body of Christ.
Heal us, O Lord, and we shall be healed;
Save us, and we shall be saved.

We have come in a spirit of prayer-
To wrestle, to plead, to summon, to advocate, to receive.
Heal us, O Lord, and we shall be healed;
Save us, and we shall be saved.


Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.
