A Prayer for Healing

We carry many wounds, seen and unseen.

Scars of past losses and hurts,

released pain and held brokenness.

Yet you, O Divine Creator,

Bind our wounds, heal our hurts,

and soothe our pain.

You do not fish us out of our humanity

you dwell with us in love.

Help us to know that in the scars we carry,

dwells the hope of our future, knowing that in the place of the wound, the light of your love shines through. Amen.

Bishop Deon Johnson, Diocese of Missouri
