September 21 Prayer
‘Jesus said go and learn what this means; I desire to show mercy, not sacrifice. I have come for the sick and not for the healthy. I invite the outcasts of society, not those who think they are on the right path. Come and follow me.’ Matt.9
Pause to ponder these words and pray with an open heart to learn.
Jesus, I want to follow you in your ways and not in any of my ways that do not show mercy.
I confess my unhealthy attitudes toward others and myself. I receive your mercy today in the parts of me that need healing.
Lord have mercy.
You are the great physician that comes to us all to show mercy and mend our hearts.
We pray for healing for all of those that are sick, the afflicted, the weak, and the helpless. May we be kept from thinking we are better than, but recognize our own needs first.
In receiving your healing touch may we then go out and bring healing to others.
Let us seek your face always, and be radiant.
Let us tell of your greatness and mercy.
May we be image bearers living worthy of our call to live in love, as You have loved us.
May we be a message of healing, reconciliation, and peace that is only found in you, Jesus Christ.
Show us the pathway to follow that will restore us and make a way to heal and mend.
We look to you as our physician and the One that will heal our sick and broken world.
Glory be to the one God and Father of all, who is over all, in all, and living through all. Eph.4,5, Psalms 34:5
Walk in his peace this day and let your face be radiant with love and joy!
