Sunday to Monday | Real Faith

I have learned that faith means trusting in advance what will only make sense in reverse. – Philip Yancey

Like a wild flower 
in God's care 
I put my worries away 
trusting the One who holds me. 

— Macrina Wiederkehr in The Song of the Seed

On Sunday Executive Minister Vikki Luce taught on Luke 7:1-10 and a man who had such faith in the power of God to heal that Jesus was amazed.  

BLESSINGS PRAYER FOR HEALING ~ Joyce Rupp, Out of the Ordinary
May you desire to be healed.
May what is wounded in your life be restored to good health.
May you be receptive to the ways in which healing needs to happen.
May you take good care of yourself.
May you extend compassion to all that hurts within your body, mind, spirit.
May you be patient with the time it takes to heal.
May you be aware of the wonders of your body, mind, and spirit and their amazing capacity to heal.
May the skills of all those who are caring for you be used to the best of their ability in returning you to good health.
May you be open to receive from those who extend kindness, care, and compassion to you.
May you rest peacefully under the sheltering wings of divine love, trusting in this gracious presence.
May you find little moments of beauty and joy to sustain you.
May you keep hope in your heart.

Here's some thoughts for the week:

  • What does “real faith” mean to you?
  • What do you need to be healed of? Do you trust Jesus to heal you?
  • How is Jesus’ authority present in your life?
  • How might you pray for healing in our world today? Your caring, your character and your confidence in Jesus can make it happen.
