Let us see one another through eyes
enlightened by understanding and compassion.
Release us from judgment so we can receive the stories
of our sisters and brothers with respect and attention.
Open our hearts to the cries of a suffering world
and the healing melodies of peace and justice for all creation.
Empower us to be instruments of justice and equality everywhere.

Make Me a Miracle Worker

I am here only to be truly helpful.
I am here to represent Him Who sent me.
I do not have to worry about what to say or what to do,
because He Who sent me will direct me.
I am content to be wherever He wishes, knowing He goes there
with me.
I will be healed as I let Him teach me to heal.

Dear God,
Deliver me to my passion.
Deliver me to my brilliance.
Deliver me to my intelligence.
Deliver me to my depth.
Deliver me to my nobility.
Deliver me to my beauty.
Deliver me to my power to heal.
Deliver me to You.

Heavenly Father
I call on you. I ask you to touch [us] with your healing power.
Cast out all sickness and recreate [us].
Let the warmth of your healing love pass through [us].
Lord grant that [we] will be free from pain,
from anxiety, and from discomfort.
Please allow your love and the compassion of caregivers,
family and friends to bring peace and comfort to [us].
This we ask through Christ, our Lord.
Amen.

God, hear my prayer,
and let my cry come to You.
Do not hide from me in the day of my distress;
turn to me and speedily answer my prayer.
Eternal God, Source of healing,
out of my distress I call upon You.
Help me sense Your presence at this difficult time.
Grant me patience when the hours are heavy;
in hurt or disappointment give me courage.
Keep me trustful in Your love.
Give me strength for today, and hope for tomorrow.
To your loving hands I commit my spirit
when asleep and when awake.
You are with me; I shall not fear.

—Traditional Jewish Healing Prayer

Beloved Lord, Almighty God,
Through the Rays of the Sun,

Through the All Pervading Life in Space;
Purify and Revivify Us
And we pray, heal our bodies, hearts, and souls.
Amen

Comforting Women With Breast Cancer

Father, for the strength you have given me, I thank you. For the health you have blessed me with, I thank you. For the women who are going through breast cancer and their families, I ask you to strengthen and to heal as you see fit. Lord, we know you want us to be in good health and to prosper. Lord, use us to do the work you have for us to do. For we know time is getting short on this earth. Lord, be with every woman who is sick and encourage them as only you can. I know how faithful you are. You have shown yourself to be everything you say you are in your Holy Word. I praise you, for you made this body, and you can heal this body. In Jesus’ Name I pray.

My Religion Is Kindness

sunset-hands-love-woman.jpg

If you wish to experience peace, provide peace for another.

If you wish to know that you are safe, cause another to know that they are safe.

If you wish to better understand seemingly incomprehensible things,

help another to better understand.

If you wish to heal your own sadness or anger, seek to heal the sadness or anger of another.

Those others are waiting for you now.  They are looking to you for guidance,

for help, for courage, for strength, for understanding, and for assurance at this hour.

Most of all, they are looking to you for love.

My religion is very simple.

My religion is kindness.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, 1981
