I WILL HEAL THEIR FEFECTION, I WILL LOVE THEM FREELY (Hos. 14:5)
I SAW my people’s ways, but I will heal them and lead them: I will give full comfort to them and to those who mourn for them. I, the Creator, who gave them life. Peace, peace to the far and the near, says the Lord; and I will heal them. (Isaiah 57:18-19)
O GOD our Healer and our Good, you sent your Son to cure the world’s sickness by taking upon himself the burden of its guilt. Heal the diseased vision that causes us to mistake evil for good; heal the sickened mind that causes us to mistake selfishness for love; head the unhealthy habits that we have made our own, so that we may stand before you, whole in body; soul, and spirit, to sing your praise for ever with all the saints, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
