For the Sick
Heavenly Father, giver of life and health: Comfort and relieve those who are sick, and give your power of healing to those who minister to their needs. May they be strengthened in their weakness and have confidence in your loving care, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
For People Facing Uncertainty
God of the present moment, God who in Jesus still the storm and soothes the frantic heart: bring hope and courage to us all as we wait in uncertainty. Bring hope that you will make us the equal of whatever lies ahead. Bring us courage to endure what cannot be avoided, for your will is health and wholeness: you are God, and we need you.” (edited excerpt from “A New Zealand Prayer Book)
