Prayer for our Schools - 10/4/17

And when Jesus entered Peter's house, he saw his mother-in-law lying sick with a fever. He touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she rose and began to serve him. That evening they brought to him many who were oppressed by demons, and he cast out the spirits with a word and healed all who were sick. This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: “He took our illnesses and bore our diseases.” (Matthew 18:14-17)

Lord Jesus Christ, whose compassion led You to heal all kinds of sickness and disease, look with compassion upon those who are ill in our schools.  If it is Your will, bring them health and healing.  But if You see fit to let their sicknesses linger, give them the strength to bear up under their crosses. According to Your will, heal our students who suffer illnesses with the same power by which You forgive our sins through Your suffering and death on the cross; for You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
