|Scripture Reading - suggestions|
|Song - suggestions|
We who have gathered for healing give thanks for the grace we have received
and, having ourselves felt the healing touch of God,
reach out in prayer for the healing of our world.
We pray for those held bound by memories of war and conflict –
and for those still maimed by injuries received…
|We pray for those caught up in conflict:|
|We pray for those whose lives have been torn apart by natural disaster|
|We pray for those being tortured or subjected to any form of cruelty|
|We pray for those seeking refuge and asylum|
|We pray for children deprived of childhood through war or disaster|

|Closing Responses – based on Revelation 21/ 22|
|Reader||Then I saw a new heaven and a new
and I heard a voice from the throne saying:
|ALL||“See, the home of God is among
He will dwell with them as their God;
they will be His peoples,
and God himself will be with them;
he will wipe every tear from their eyes.
Death will be no more;
mourning and crying and pain will be no more.
|Reader||And the one who was seated on the throne said:|
|ALL||"SEE, I AM MAKING ALL THINGS NEW.”|
|Reader||And the city has no need of sun or
moon to shine in it
for the glory of God is its light and its lamp is the Lamb.
|ALL||THE NATIONS WILL WALK BY ITS LIGHT;
PEOPLE WILL BRING INTO IT THE GLORY
AND THE HONOUR OF THE NATIONS.
|Reader||And at its heart.
planted by the river that runs through paradise is the tree of life:
|ALL||AND THE TREE SHALL BEAR ITS FRUIT
AND THE LEAVES OF THAT TREE
WILL BE FOR THE HEALING OF THE NATIONS.
|Reader||And may God bless us|
|ALL||THE FATHER, THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.|
|Reader||And until we meet again|
|ALL||MAY GOD HOLD US IN THE PALM OF HIS HAND.|
