Psalm 68

Hear my prayer, answer me, Lord, turn to me in your goodness.
Hear my prayer, answer me, Lord, turn to me in your love.

 

Brothers and sisters,
let us bless the Lord, who went about doing good and healing the sick.
Blessed be God now and for ever. 

A prayer of blessing

Lord, our God,
you sent your Son into the world
to bear our infirmities
and to endure our sufferings.
We ask that your blessing for your servants who are sick,
will give them strength
to overcome their weakness
through the power of patience
and the comfort of hope
and that with your aid they will soon be restored to health.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. 
Amen.

from Psalm 68

This is my prayer to you, my heartfelt prayer to you:
In your love, Lord, answer me, with a help that never fails,
In your kindness answer, in compassion turn to me.

Hear my prayer, answer me, Lord, turn to me in your goodness.
Hear my prayer, answer me, Lord, turn to me in your love.

In poverty and pain, your help will lift me up.
I will praise your name in song, glorify and give you thanks.
In your kindness answer, in compassion turn to me.

 

May God the Father bless you.
Amen.
May God the Son comfort you.
Amen.
May God the Holy Spirit enlighten you.
Amen. 

Hear my prayer, answer me, Lord, turn to me in your love.
