A Collect for Jesus’ Healing Word

Lord Jesus, at whose word, there is cleansing and healing, speak your word over us, that our unclean hearts would be made pure, our tangled minds would be straightened, and our broken bodies healed, and in our joy and relief, we will praise you for your goodness and compassion, grateful for a God who cares for the likes of us, through you who endured as we do in frailty and finitude and ascended to the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘But Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be silent, and come out of him!” And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him.’ – Mark 1:25-26
