Heavenly Father,

I call on you right now
in a special way. 
It is through your power
that I was created.
Every breath I take,
every morning I wake,
and every moment of
every hour,
I live under your power.

[Father, I ask you now
to touch me with that
same power. For if
you created me from
nothing, you can certainly
recreate me.]

Fill me with the healing
power of your Spirit. Cast out anything that should not be in me. Mend what is broken.  Root out any unproductive cells.  Open blocked arteries or veins and rebuild damaged areas, if any. Remove all inflammation and cleanse any infection.

Let the warmth of your healing love permeate my body, making it anew. Cleanse my mind, and repair my bruised soul. Let my body, mind and spirit, work in perfect union, as a Temple of God.

Restore me to full health, so that I may serve you and other creations, the rest of my life, according to your will. Amen . . .
