Lord Jesus, how wonderfully comforting it is to me that You are the healer of my illnesses! Whenever I recover from sickness, it is Your doing. You have all power to heal and to cure, for me as much as for those people You helped long ago — and Your love does not fall short of Your power. You care for me at all times, well or sick, awake or asleep, with You or away from You. As long as my sickness lasts, then, I will trust that You care for me. I know that one day, You will heal all my sicknesses when You raise me from the dead. Thank you, Lord Jesus. Amen.

When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

— St. Matthew 8:16-17
