Prayers and Praises

Let Us Pray:
God of goodness and love, please hear our prayers for the sick members of our community and all who are in need, that amid mental and physical suffering may they find consolation in your healing presence. Grant your mercy as you close wounds, cure illness, make broken bodies whole and free downcast and oppressed spirits. May these special people find lasting health and deliverance, and so join us in thanking you for all your gifts. We ask this through the Lord Jesus who healed those who believed. Amen.
