FRIENDS PRAY FOR SOMEONE WHO IS VERY ILL

(reflecting how friends approached Jesus, carrying their sick friend on a stretcher, lowering him down through a hole in the roof – Mk 2:1-12)

 

Lord Jesus, we read in the Gospels

that you spoke individually to many people, changing their lives

as you showed them recognition and acceptance and as you brought them healing and wholeness.

 

 

We read, too, of how some people                                                         Mk 2:1-12

were such good friends

of a man who was weak and paralysed,

 

that they carried him on his stretcher:

making their way through the crowds, carrying him on to the roof,

and gently lowering him down,

so that he could be right in front of you.

They must have been such good friends to him, and others could see

the tenderness of their love and care

as well as their extraordinary faith and trust in you, Lord, in bringing him into your presence.

 

And isn’t it the very same

that we are doing today, Lord

- those of us who love and care for                  -

as we bring him/her, carry him/her, in the strength of our love into the warmth and light of your presence:

knowing that you, too, are very fond of him/her?

We can all but hear you

calling                      by his/her name                                                  Is 43:1

as you are also calling him/her your friend,                                          Jn 15:15

and we know that your love never fails.                                                1 Cor 13:8

 

Lord,

                - "the one you love - is ill",                                                   Jn 11:3

and those of us who join you

in loving him/her and caring for him/her

ask you to lay your hands on him/her                                                  Lk 4:40, Mk 5:23

and transform his/her life once again, bringing him/her the fullness

of your healing and your life. Amen.                                                     Jn 10:10
