Paraphrase of the Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi for Healing
Gracious, loving, caring God,
Source of all healing and wholeness,
Make us instruments of Your healing.
When we are weak and in pain, help us to rest;
When we are anxious, help us to wait patiently;
When we are fearful, help us to trust in You;
When we are lonely, help us to love;
When we place You apart from us,
help us to know that You are still near.
Healing God, grant us not so much to demand everything
from ourselves, as to allow others to help us;
Grant us not so much to seek escape, as to face ourselves
and to learn the depths of Your love.
For it is in being uncertain and not in control,
that we find true faith;
In knowing the limits of mind and body,
that we find wholeness of spirit;
In passing through death that we find life
that lasts forever.
In the name of Christ Jesus, our Savior,
our Healer, our Lord, we offer ourselves to You.
