who are in physical anguish in this hour.

Please, Lord show Your mercy!

un-cloud confused minds, alleviate pain,
heal sorrows and mental torments, and raise up all downcast
May Your hurting people find rest
and recovery. Please grant them deliverance from suffering,

Who made the lame to walk, and the blind
to see, Who cast out all evil spirits,

and believed in You, and Who, Yourself,
suffered and died for us on the cross,
and rose up from death to everlasting Glory!
I pray in trust, and hope, and love,
