All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
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.
