Prayer for Healing

Victims of Abuse

God of endless love,

ever caring, ever strong,

always present, always just:

You gave your only Son

to save us by the blood of his cross.

Gentle Jesus, shepherd of peace,

join to your own suffering

the pain of all who have been hurt

in body, mind, and spirit

by those who betrayed the trust placed in them.

Hear our cries as we agonize

over the harm done to our brothers and sisters.

Breathe wisdom into our prayers,

soothe restless hearts with hope,

steady shaken spirits with faith:

Show us the way to justice and wholeness,

enlightened by truth and enfolded in your mercy.

 

Holy Spirit, comforter of hearts,

heal Your people's wounds

and transform our brokenness.

Grant us courage and wisdom, humility and grace,

so that we may act with justice

and find peace in You.

We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

DESIRE FOR CLOSER UNION

 

Lord Jesus Christ, pierce my soul with Your love so that I may always long for You alone, who are the bread of angels and the fulfillment of the soul’s deepest desires.  May my heart always hunger and feed upon You so that my soul may be filled with the sweetness of Your presence.  May my soul thirst for You, who are the source of life, wisdom, knowledge, light and all the riches of God our Father.  May I always seek and find You, think upon You, speak to You, and do all things for the honor and glory of Your holy name.  Be always my only hope, my peace, my refuge, and my help in whom my heart is rooted so that I may never be separated from You.  {Saint Bonaventure}
