Reflect

For those who suffer from chronic illness, every day can be a challenge. Even the simplest tasks require a monumental effort. If you suffer in body, know that God is with you in spirit.


Pray

God of wholeness,
pain is my constant companion—

so much so that I struggle to find a moment of respite.
Grant that I may find relief in your company.
Bless my broken body and give me the strength
to greet the day with peace of mind.
All strength, all wellness, all comfort comes from you.

Amen.


Act

Close your eyes and spend a moment in stillness. Pray for those who are sick. If you are well, share this prayer with those whose spirits could use a lift.
