“Appealing to Him”
We appeal to you, Lord, to take care of those about whom we care.
We trust you, Lord, to take care of them according to your mercy and grace.
We accept, O Lord, whatever forms your mercy, grace, care, and curing takes.
We thank you, Lord, for hearing and responding to our appeals for the sake of others.
“When he entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, appealing to him and saying, ‘Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, in terrible distress.’ And he said to him, ‘I will come and cure him.’” (Matthew 8:5-7)
