Before beginning, breathe deeply, paying attention to the rhythm of your breathing and centering yourself.

Holy One, you send out your word and heal us.  We hear your word and we realize that you are at work in our lives and in what we are going through.  We hear and remember your promises to us.  We hear your word and we hear the stories of what your people have experienced in life and how they have made it through, guided and aided by your loving hands.  Heal us through your word.  Bring hope, strength, wisdom, and guidance.  May your word be a salve on our wounds and may it mend our brokenness, through Jesus Christ, AMEN.

Close with the Lord’s Prayer, pausing between each petition.
