Day 8

 

Call to Prayer

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For yours is the Kingdom and the power and glory forever. Amen.

from Matthew 6:9-13

Silence

Psalm 103:1–5

Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
who satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. 

Read Acts 3:1-10

Prayer of Response

(Pray for yourself and on behalf of others)

Jesus, please bring your healing presence into my life. I feel pain, but I do not understand its origin, nor do I know how to find relief, except by calling on you. You must be my Relief, you must be my Healing. I come to you by faith, asking for help, based on your compassionate heart. As my Creator, please show me compassion. Demonstrate your ability to save, heal, and deliver. Remake me. I offer myself and my life to you. Enter into my story through the work of your Spirit. Please reveal your truth. I wait upon your word, and I wait upon you. Glorify your name. I pray for Jesus’ sake, Amen.
