Hello to every reader. Today’s prayer came to me a few weeks ago. Fortunately, the ability to serve God is not dependant on our being wonderfully healed and healthy first. Rather, we need to serve him as best we can in every relationship, and in all circumstances. Illness brings us into direct contact with therapists, other patients, and their relatives, whom we would perhaps not otherwise have met. Every one of these contacts gives us an opportunity to offer support, friendship, care and love to others. In fact, I’m just beginning to think that it’s through serving others that we are healed.
It’s true that illness limits me,
But it doesn’t define me.
May it help me to serve others,
Whilst loving you with all my heart.
In Jesus’ name,
