The Power of Prayer
Nobody knows the power of prayer, But somebody must be listening there
With a friendly ear for the heart that calls, Someone who know when a sparrow falls.
Miracles lie in the power of prayer; Faith that can banish the soul’s despair!
Hope that can shine like a holy light And brighten the spirit’s darkest night!
When earthly help is of no avail There is one Friend who will never fail;
Just lift your eyes, the answer is there…For nobody knows the power of Prayer
(Holy Spirit Adoration Sisters)
A Prayer For Healing
God our Father
be near to those who suffer
In the time of weakness and pain;
Relieve them of their burden
and heal them
If it be your will.
Jesus heal our lives Our broken spirits,
Our hearts and minds Our body and soul.
Jesus hear our prayer You know our weakness
Our struggle and our pain For you too have suffered
Jesus listen in love As you once did at Cana
To your Mother Mary And respond in mercy. Amen
(St. Benddict’s Abbey)
Prayer in Time of Need
O Lord, in my present need, help me to believe
that you are aware of my trouble and will do what
is best for me. Give me the strength to trust You
and to put the present and future in your merciful hands.
(Society of the Divine Savior)
Lord, You invite all who are burdened to come to You. Allow Your healing to heal me. Touch my soul with Your compassion for others. Touch my heart with Your courage and infinite love for all. Touch my mind with Your wisdom, that my mouth may always proclaim your praise. Teach me to reach out to You in my need, and help me to lead others to you by example. Most loving Heart of Jesus, bring me health in body and spirit that I may serve You with all my strength. Touch gently this life which You have created, now and forever. Amen (Marianist Mission Prayer)
“God indeed saves me; I am confident and unafraid. My strength and my courage is the Lord, and he saves me.” (Isaiah, 12:2)
