PRAYERS FOR THE SICK
We ask God to bless all those who are ill and have
asked us to pray for them.
Father of love and healing, hear our prayers for the
members of our community who have asked us to
pray for them, and for all in our midst who are in
need. Amidst their suffering, may they find consolation in your healing presence. Look upon our brothers and sisters who are ill and grant them days of
better health and renewed strength.
We ask this through the Lord Jesus. Amen.
