Prayer for Healing (For January 24, 2016 -- to go with Mark 5:1-20)

God of life, God of our broken-ness, God of wholeness,
we come in search of healing.
In a world of idols and demons,
we admit that there are things which take hold of us, which possess our minds, which control our lives.
And so we seek to be set free. Maybe...
We also know that some of the demons that control us keep us normal in the ways of the world.
So while we long to be freed so that we could be who you call us to be,
we also worry if the world is ready for the demons to be sent away.
God of healing and wholeness, God who the demons recognize and obey,
set us free, release from those things that possess us, cast out our demons, that we would be more able and willing to follow the Way.
These thing we pray in the name of the Great Physician, Jesus of Nazareth,
Our healer, our guide, our Saviour, the one we know as Christ. Amen.
