Individual Prayer and Blessing for Healing

Each 3rd Sunday CLP Joint Worship Service

All healing is of God.  A prayer and blessing for healing in no way detracts from the gifts God gives through medicine and psychotherapy.  It is no substitute for either medicine or the proper care of one’s health.  Rather, it adds to our total resources for wholeness.

 God does not promise that we shall be spared suffering but does promise to be with us in our suffering.  Trusting that promise, we are enabled to recognize God’s sustaining presence in pain, sickness, injury, and estrangement.

 A healing prayer is not necessarily a prayer for a “cure,” but it trusts that healing can happen.  The greatest healing of all is the reunion or reconciliation of one with God.
