We can’t understand this side of eternity why God doesn’t always heal physical infirmities. We can rest assured however, that because of the example of Jesus’ earthly ministry, God cares about our souls and our bodies. If we don’t receive our healing on earth, the Great Physician will surely heal us for eternity.
Great Physician, we know you care about our bodies,
especially the ones that suffer.
If we must suffer, help us to do so well,
and with the hope that it will not be for eternity.
Eternity means our complete and final healing.
We thank you and praise you.
Offer an Our Father, Hail Mary, this prayer, or another one of your choosing for the healing of someone you know who suffers from a chronic illness.
