Paperback
All prayer is concerned with healing in its fullest sense, as whenever we pray, we open ourselves to receive God's transforming love. When we pray for others, we are offering ourselves as channels for that same healing love.The prayers in this exquisite collection recognize that each of us is bruised, weary, or hurt in some way, and that strong or weak, we stand alongside each other in our common need of God's forgiveness and love.Containing prayers for ourselves, for others, and for special times and needs, A Little Book of Healing Prayer is itself an inspiration and a tonic.

Excerpt

Excerpt from: A Little Book of Healing Prayer

Lord, Heal and Help Me 1 Here I am, Lord, Wounded Worried divided against myself. Here I am Naked Numb exposed to you. Here I am Held Healed Loved passive in the arms of my God. 2 Lord, come as sweet, healing oil into my weary mind, my bruised heart and my dried-up soul. 3 You meet me in gentleness. You come close. You take my coldness and warm me from the inside. As my cold heart melts, Lord, let your streams flow through me, that I may play my part in the renewing of the earth. Based on some words of Ulrich Schaffer 4 Lord, I want to reach you and I try to touch you, but many forces jostle me and my own fears thrust me aside. I want to reach you and I try to touch even your garment, but they say I am a fool and I am filled with doubt. I want to reach you and I try to touch even the hem of your garment, and my fingers brush the homespun cloth and I am flooded with healing and you turn and ask who touched you and I fall on my face and you bend down, lifting me gently, and telling me that my own faith, that fragment of hope, has healed me. And you love me, and my life is changed. The woman with a haemorrhage, Luke 8:43--48 5 Now my life is hidden with Christ in God; I am yours, Lord, for better, for worse, in times of hope when I feel well and alive, and in the bleak landscape of my darkness; in it all I am yours. Colossians 3:3 6 Lord, cleanse and sweeten the springs of my being, that your freedom and light may flow into my conscious mind and into my hidden, unconscious self. 7 Gentle God, ground of my beseeching, you enfold me in goodness and wrap me tenderly as in a garment; be my true rest, and make me one with you. God my Father, my Mother, my Spouse, let love be my meaning as it is yours, and keep me always in the love with which you loved me before I was born. Based on teachings of Julian of Norwich (c. 1342--1413) 8 Lord, through weariness and hurt, through disaster on the news, through headaches and depression, I am still yours. I do not understand, but I believe that you are here in the dark places of human life, and that nothing can take us out of your hands. 9 O God, I am hurt and I am wrestling: wrestling with the self-pity that threatens to swallow me up; wrestling with my reluctance to admit my own failings; wrestling with loneliness and the longing to be fully understood. Who am I wrestling with, God? Myself? The evil one? Or is it with You, my Guarding Angel, my God, who will not let me go, until I rest exhausted but healing in Your arms, as Your sorrow dissolves my pride, and Your love penetrates my scars? Jacob wrestles with God, Genesis 32:24--32
