Prayer before a scripture about healing

God, we all need healing
and so we come to read this text,
aware that gospel words
like these —
your faith has made you well …
oh you of little faith …
your sins are forgiven, stand up …
have been used to batter your children.

Open our hearts to the truth
of this story in its own time and ours,
the meaning in open roofs,
mud, garment hems or broken chains,
and the tangled grace of
believe-and-help-my-unbelief.

Use our listening faith
for ourselves
or those dear to us
for your blessing touch. Amen.
