Prayer for December 9: Please pray with me. God of health, today we pray that you would grant us your healing – healing our bodies of ailments, healing our hearts of hard-heartedness, healing our minds of clutter, healing our spirits of being unsettled, healing our feet that we may walk the gospel into each place we come to, healing our hands that they may offer loving touch, healing our mouth that it may offer words of mercy, love, peace, and forgiveness. Heal us Lord as we prepare for you to come – as you came so long ago, are coming into our lives today, and will come back again to bring about the fulfillment of your kingdom. Amen.
Prayer for August 11: Please pray with me. Holy God, today we pray for physical health and well being. As the Olympics continue, we ask that you protect all the athletes from harm. Be with the medical staff and personal who treat them. Be with the fans that they might cheer for the best effort for their favorites and be kind to those they cheer against. Inspire us to a renewed look at how we are stewards of our body. While we are not Olympic athletes, we are your creation. Strengthen us in our efforts to be good stewards of the body you have given us. Amen.
