  Almighty God, author and creator of life: You sent Jesus Christ our great physician to comfort and heal. It is still your will that all who turn to you in faith might find healing.

    Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
    Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses

    Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
    For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
