Blessing of Those in the Healing Ministries

On Sunday, November 6th, we asked the Lord's blessing upon those in the healing ministries. May the Lord strengthen them in their efforts to bring healing and consolation to those suffering in body and soul, and may He grant them all many blessed years!

Prayer for Those in the Healing Ministries

O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, Physician of souls and bodies; Thou didst command Thy disciples in Thy Name to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead and cast our demons. Thy disciples then, as also today, preach the Good News, while Thou dost work with them, confirming their preaching through the accompanying signs.  We pray Thee:  Bless, direct, impart wisdom and skill to those in the healing ministries who resort to Thee as their Chief Physician and Teacher.  Enlighten the mind, purify the heart, and strengthen the hand of those in the fields of medical healing and the related curative and supporting disciplines.  Enable them to be worthy instruments of Thy healing power; to recall Thy word, “Freely you have received, freely give," and to be free of the love of money, glory and power; seeking to humbly serve those ill in body, soul and spirit.  May their ministry be cultivated in prayer, patience, self-sacrifice, and love.  This we ask of Thee, through the prayers of Thy all-laudable Apostles and worthy disciples; of the blessed choir of the holy and unmercenary physicians: the Apostle and Evangelist Luke, the excellent healer of the infirm; of Antipas, Charalampus and Blaise, the most honored hieromartyrs; Spyridon and Modestus, the all-splendid luminaries of the Church; the three pair of divinely wise saints Cosmas and Damian, who shared the same name and the same ways; Cyrus and the glorious John; the divine  Panteleimon and Hermolaus; together the Nun-Martyr and deliverer from depression, Maria of Gatchina; the Royal Nun-martyr Elizabeth of Moscow; Luke the Archbishop and Surgeon of Crimea; and all those who have and are healing by Thy power and in Thy holy Name.  For unto Thee belongs all glory, honor and worship, together with Thy Father Who is from everlasting and Thine all-holy and Life-Giving Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
