O God, the strength of the weak and the comfort of sufferers:
Mercifully accept our prayers, and grant to those who are sick
the help of your power, that their sickness may be turned into
health, and our sorrow into joy; through Jesus Christ our
Lord. Amen.

O God of heavenly powers, by the might of your command
drive away from our bodies all sickness and all infirmity:
Be present in your goodness with those who are sick or full of sorrow,
that their weakness may be banished and their strength restored; and that,
their health is renewed, and their spirit strengthened for all lies ahead.
Amen.

Great Spirit watch over those who are suffering.  Send blessings to heal
their mind, bodies and spirits.   Give strength to them in their hours of
trouble and need.  Allow them to feel your great presence and the love of
their friends and family as they continue their journey home.  Bring blessings
to all those who pray and send forth those prayers to you.  Amen

Just as the soft rains fill the streams,
pour into the rivers, and join together in the oceans,
so may the power of every moment of your goodness
flow forth to awaken and heal all beings--
those here now, those gone before, those yet to come.
