A Prayer for Healing
Loving Father, touch me with your healing hands, as your will for me is to be well in mind, body, soul, and spirit. Cover all of me with the most precious blood of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Cast out anything that should not be in me. Root out unhealthy and abnormal cells. Open blocked arteries or veins and rebuild and replenish any damaged areas. Remove inflammation and cleanse infection by the power of Jesus’ precious blood.
Let the fire of your healing love pass through my body, to heal and make new any diseased areas, so that my body will function the way you created it to function. Touch, also, my mind and my emotions, even the deepest recesses of my heart. Saturate me with your presence, love, joy, and peace and draw me ever closer to you every moment of my life. And Father, fill me with your Holy Spirit and empower me to do your works so that my life will bring glory and honor to your holy name. I ask this in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Heavenly Father, I thank you for loving me and for sending your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ to save and to set me free. I trust in your power and grace that sustain and restore me. Amen.

Join us in a time of reflection, expectation, and contemplation during the season of Advent 2021.
Each day a new reflection with a scripture and prayer will be posted on the Metropolitan AME Church website and social media to encourage you to hear the words of those reflecting, anticipating, and contemplating with you in community as we thank God for what God has done, notice what God is actively doing and anticipate what God will do next.
Read along with us each day or download the book to read and write along with us offline.
