Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
All prayer is concerned with healing in its fullest sense. Whenever we pray we open ourselves to receive God's transforming love. When we pray for others we are offering ourselves as channels for that same healing love. The prayers in this exquisite collection recognize that each person is bruised, weary, or hurt in some way. Whether strong or weak, we each stand alongside each other in our common need of God's forgiveness and love. A Little Book of Healing Prayer contains inspiring prayers for ourselves, for others, and for special times and needs.
