Prayer Meditation- O Lord, so many are sick today. Some are struggling with physical and chronic illness. Some are sick in mind and spirit- depression and anxiety and other maladies of the heart. We can feel so weak, sometimes it is just so hard to pray!  But Lord, You are always willing to touch and heal us- prayer can be so hard but Lord we need most of all to ask for Your Strength. Lord lay Your Hands on us through Your Word, Your Sacraments, and through the loving care of others. Lord help us to be Jesus to those among us who may be too weak or feel too defeated to reach out to You- let us be Your Hands and Feet today to those who are most in need of Your Healing Touch!
