Prayer in the Midst of Illness

Here’s a prayer written for those in the midst of illness.

God of all Creation,
We ask you to come into this place
And be present with us.
We can ask because we know you come.
We know you come because you have come.
In Jesus, God, you came to us in a body,
A body just like ours.
In Jesus, you came to us in a body.
It was a body that jumped, ran, walked, and slept
It was a body that coughed, wheezed, sneezed, and got sick.
It was a body that got new life, and life abundant.
Because you died and rose again, we know that we will join you.
We thank you, God, for being a God who makes all things new again.
We bid you come, and make all things new again.
We await the day you come.
God of all creation,
We ask you to come into this place,
And be present with us.
We ask because we know you come.
In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Amen.

Written for a member at a church I served.
