Before we pray we acknowledge God as our Lord and Savior:
Ant 1: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. – Ephesians 1:2 (MEV)
If it were not for you God, our enemies would have swallowed us whole.
If it was not for you God, our salvation would not be at hand.
If it were not for you God, the Spiritual blessings of heaven would not be within our reach.
Ant 1: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
All praise be to God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for if it was not for you God we would remain unholy in your sight.
O’ Lord, you chose us before the the world, for if it was not for you we would not have been predestined to be your adopted children, your many son’s and daughter’s.
My loving God, I confess through your mercy we your children are redeemed, for if it was not for you our many sins would go unforgiving for all eternity.
Ant 1: Grace to you and peace from God, our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
A Prayer of Healing for Our Brother in Christ Franklyn Joseph Stark
“Truly, truly I say to you, seek me not because you saw signs but because you ate of the loaves and were filled.” – John 6:26 (MEV).
Lord, you alone can heal me, for I have grieved you by my sin.
Once more I say: O’Lord, have mercy on me, for I have grieved you by my sin.
Say this together:
‘God, come to my assistance.’
“Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.”
We who love our father, or brother, Franklyn Joseph Stark, humbly pray to you to heal your faithful son who has suffered a stroke, and that you may lay your healing hands upon him. Whisper in his ear, ‘Be not afraid, for I your God am always with you.’ Reassure him this, as you have done for your most beloved children in ages past.
O’Lord, our perfect savior, we ask that you might extend your grace upon our good father and brother Joseph. Sooth his heart, mind, body, and soul so that your mercy can begin to work through his entire body; remaking him a new. O’Lord, breathe within him your healing breath to which leads to rebirth, renewal, and reinvigoratation in your perfect love granting him many more productive years in which to serve you here on this earth. Give him your body, the bread of life, your blood, the eternal waters of salvation.
My God, my we the family of Joseph Stark remind you of your promise to come to our aid in times of great need, for if not for your love we would not be deserving. Therefore, we humbly come before you and ask with good and honorable intentions on behalf of your servant in Christ, Joseph Stark, who has served you well. He has spent a lifetime providing for his family, given great care to all who has graced his table, and has been a loyal servant to you my God in all his many years. We only ask that you may reach down from heaven and heal all his physical ailments to which your servant Joseph now suffers from.
So, it is for you God to examine our hearts, judge our souls, and grant us what you will. But we humbly remind you, our hearts are heavy as we cry for your mercy, we beg for your assistance, and place all our faith within your deserving hands. May your love be poured out over your son Joseph, his loving family, and friends. Please bring your healing presence and wipe away our many fears as our father recovers in your perfect grace.
Lord, you alone can heal our father Joseph and forgive him of his sins against you.
In Jesus’s name we pray.
May the Lord bless us, protect us from evil and bring us to everlasting life.
Saint Joseph pray for us. Sancte Ioseph, ora pro nobis.
In heart felt reflection say:
‘Lord open our lips to praise your holy name. Cleanse our heart of any worthless evil or distracting thoughts. Give us the wisdom and love necessary to pray with attention, reverence, and devotion. Father, let our prayers be heard in your presence, for it is offered through Christ our Lord.’
