Loving God, your heart overflows with compassion for your whole creation. Pour out your Spirit on all persons living with illness for which we have no cure, as well as their families and loved ones. Help them to know that you claim them as your own, deliver them from fear and pain, and send your archangel Raphael to minister to their needs; for the sake of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen.
A Prayer “For People with Diseases for Which There is No Cure” in Enriching Our Worship 2, p. 65
Even when there is no cure there can be peace as one falls into the presence and peace of a loving and compassionate God. And, there is the hope that from this heart overflowing with compassion an angel will be sent at just the right time to dispel fear and pain in the time of great need. Perhaps you will be that angel sent by God. ~Fr. Dan
Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning.
