This week we sang a hymn titled “We Come to You for Healing, Lord.” The words, written in 2002 by a minister, speak so eloquently what we sometimes struggle to ask of God during our time of difficulty.
- We come to you for healing, Lord,
of body, mind, and soul,
and pray that by, your Spirit’s touch,
we may again be whole.
- As once you walked through ancient streets
and reached toward those in pain,
come, risen Christ, among us still
with power to heal again.
- You touch us through physicians’ skills,
through nurses’ gifts of care,
and through the love of faithful friends
who lift our lives in prayer.
- When nights are long with wakefulness,
through days when strength runs low,
grant us your gift of patience, Lord,
your calming peace to know.
- We come to you, O loving Lord,
in our distress and pain,
in trust that through our nights and days
your grace will heal, sustain.
