Dear Heavenly Father, Our health is not in a good state. Lord, We suffer so much there are times when we think we cannot handle things anymore. In our suffering and pain, We reach up to you for help and healing. When we suffer, help us love you more. When we suffer, help us always turn to you rather than turning away from you. When we suffer, help us pray more and pray with more passion. When we suffer, help us be more active in trying to be all you want us to be. When we suffer, infuse us with understanding for others and help us be kindler, gentler, and more compassionate. When we suffer, help us lose our anger, lose our frustration, and lose our bitterness in your love. When we suffer, pour your hope for eternity into our hearts. All these things we humbly pray in the name of Jesus Christ, our Ever-present Holy Spirit upon whom we can rely Amen and Amen.
