the Prayer of Blessing
|May God who created you
from love and for love
heal and bless you
embracing you in the tenderest of mercies.
May Jesus who died for you
lift the burden of pain from your heart
and take it to himself
for he is gentle and humble of heart
and desires rest for your soul.
May the Spirit of consolation deep
to comfort you and strengthen you;
to restore your trust
and renew your love.
May Mary, the mother of Jesus,
whose own heart was pierced as with a sword,
enfold your prayers for healing in her own.
And may you find peace in the love of
the People of God
forgiving its brokenness
understanding its frailty
and trusting its deep desire to be reconciled with you
so that you, Gods precious son/ daughter
can once again find in the its midst
a people and a place that you can call home.
