Friday Reflections, February 3, 2012

On Monday, the email below was the daily reflection in the email of the Daily Texts from the Moravian church.  I found it timely as I've been praying this week for several who are ill, and noting a huge prevalence of cancer around me at the present.  And so today, I reflect with the Moravians on a God who heals.

O Lord, restore me to health and make me live. Isaiah 38:16

She had heard about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, for she said, "If I but touch his clothes, I will be made well." He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well."
Mark 5:27-28,34

God of wellness, we know fear when disease strikes us hard. We seek cures from doctors and pray for healing. Most of all, we lay our lives in your hands. Make us whole in spirit and touch our bodies. Amen.
