In time of illness

by Guest Contributor

Commemorating World Day of the Sick 2021 on 11th February, which is an observation started by Pope John Paul II as a way for people to offer prayers for those suffering from illnesses, we ask our Lord to comfort us when we are downcast. (2 Cor 7:6)

In time of illness

Illness can cast a shadow over our lives.
We don't quite feel ourselves, our energy levels are low and our spirits feel even lower.

Yet, Lord, at such times I know you are close to me,
So that through whatever fear I may have about my health,
Whatever anxiety I may feel about my treatment,
I know I can find solace in your comfort, find strength in your love, know peace in my heart.

Thank you for being close to me.

Amen.
