Jehovah Rapha, Heal my body and my soul. Protect me from disease and illness but use everything that you allow into my life to direct my heart towards you. I trust you and depend on you. Let me not be  afraid  of what happens to me and what I'm afraid will happen. You have my present and my future . I will follow you. Lord, heal my mind and my heart. Protect me from poisonous thoughts and beliefs. Root out my fear and my faithlessness. Heal me in every way, even the painful places like grief and insecurity.  I give every part of me to you. Only you can heal what's broken  in me. I trust you. Heal me. In Jesus' name,  Amen. Heal  me,  Lord , and I will be  heal ed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.-- Jeremiah 17:13 free image from Pixabay

Praying comfort over grief

Dear God of all comfort, You get grief. It sucks, doesn't it? Grief interrupts the joy of living and suffocates you. It's like dying but knowing you will eventually come up for air, and you will not pass out. You will live through it. You get it. You felt grief in the sharpest way possible. You were betrayed and rejected by the object of your love and sacrifice. And then you were rejected by your Father. You bore the weight of the sins of the whole world--the horrific acts of violence, cruelty, and debauchery. You felt them and You wore them as You died. And because You know what grief is, You are the only true comforter. So comfort us. Spread Your peace like a quilt over the shoulders of those who grieve parents, children, and the lives they hoped to live. Give each of us hope and confidence that You have a plan for us--You will prosper and keep us in Your perfect will. Grief is just a part of Your will. It's just not the part we wanted to experience.
