“Unclean spirit, come out of that man” Sketch: Ronald Raab, CSC

Response: Invite me into your healing mercy, O God

When I am shackled with guilt and shame…

When I am weary from my grief…

When I am overwhelmed about my past decisions…

When I do not have the energy to face my life…

When the demons of depression settle in my heart…

When my sad eyes reveal my hidden secrets…

When my face reveals my hardships…

When doubt plagues my prayer this morning…

When I want to give up on my relationships…

When I feel I do not matter…

When I cannot find the light of faith…

When I isolate my life and quite my voice…

When fear overrides my day and my night…

When hardship pulls me down into darkness…

When I do not know where to turn…

When I think I am always right…

When regret forms my opinions about others…

 

Gracious and merciful God, you invite me into your healing love. I know that no evil shall ever be my true identity. You invite me into your love, you change my disgruntled heart and you provide light in my dark thoughts and perverse actions. Guard me from all evil this day and allow me to live among those you heal for your service in the world. Help me live with hope in all I do and all I hope to become. I ask this in your healing mercy in the name of Christ the Lord. Amen
