Prayer to Christ the Healer

July 21, 2009

I found this prayer here.  Thought it was quite beautiful.

The Alexian Brothers’ Prayer to Christ the Healer
In the comfort of your love,
I pour out to you, my Saviour,
The memories that haunt me,
The anxieties that perplex me,
The fears that stifle me,
The sickness that prevails upon me,
And the frustration of all the pain
that weaves about within me.
Lord, help me to see your peace in my turmoil,
your compassion in my sorrow,
your forgiveness in my weakness,
And, your love in my need.
Touch me, O Lord, with your healing power and strength.

(And if you’re asking “Who are the Alexian Brothers?” (I did), you can go here.)
