A Collect for Healing and Relief

God of life and light, whose delight is your children fully alive, bring healing to those who are broken and relief to those who are in need, that all would know your care for them and might both give and receive fully in your kingdom of love, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who took on our frail flesh and knows our weaknesses yet held fast to you in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘The blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have good news brought to them.’ – Matthew 11:5
