A Prayer for Healing

 

I beseech you, Jesus, loving Saviour,
to show yourself to all who seek you
so that we may know you and love you.
May we love you alone, desire you alone,
and keep you always in our thoughts.
May love for you possess our hearts,
May affection for you fill our senses,
so that we may love all else in you. 
Jesus, King of Glory, you know how to give greatly
And you have promised great things.
Nothing is greater than yourself.
We ask nothing else of you but yourself.
You are our life,
our light,
our food and our drink,
our God and our all.
from an ancient Irish prayer.
