Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. James 5:13

Great Doctor, you still heal our diseases, you are still our rock and shield, you still remove mountains and stumbling blocks from our path and so to you we offer our thanks and praise. Please do not stop being present with us even in spite of us. Heal us, Emmanuel, hear our prayers. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
