O Jesus, You suffered and died for us.
You understand suffering.
Teach me to understand the suffering
of people I know and love
as You do;
to bear my own suffering in union with You;
to offer it with You to atone for my sins
and to bring Your grace to souls in need.
Calm my fears;
increase my trust.
May I gladly accept Your holy will
and become more like You in trial.
If it be Your will, restore me to health
so that I may work for Your honour and glory
and the salvation of all people.
your love is as wide as the oceans
as deep as the sea
and as tall as the heavens.
May your spirit rise like a mightly wave
and come and restore those who are ill.
You are the water of life,
you are a fresh spring,
you are healing rain
to all those who are in need.
