Healing Service May 20, 2020 Quickel Lutheran Church
Updated: May 23, 2020
Pastor: Christ healed many as he invited all to come near to the reign of God. Likewise, today, the reign of God comes near to us, with healing. The Church is a place of healing touch. Yet for the first time in our history, we are withholding touch for the very sake of health and healing. So we depend on the power of words, to heal. Today we gather for healing in the name of Jesus Christ, healer and reconciler of the world. May we entrust ourselves, and all, to God.
HYMN Dearest Jesus, at Your Word
A HEALING STORY
Pastor: Let us pray, In the name of our Savior Jesus Christ, May you be strengthened and filled with God’s grace, that each of you may know the healing power of the Spirit. Grant comfort in suffering to all who are in need of healing. When we are afraid, give us courage, when afflicted, give us patience, when dejected, give us hope and when we are alone, assure your children of your support. Through Christ our Lord,
Pastor: Almighty God, Strong Tower, to whom all things in heaven and on earth bow and obey, be
our sure defense, and help us to know that the name given to us for health and salvation is
your name--our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
HYMN Here I am, Lord
Pastor: The peace of Christ be with you always.
All: And also with you.
