Recently a dear relative reached out to me and shared that they were experiencing severe challenges. I felt extremely concerned for their physical welfare and wondered what I could do to help. In my heart I knew, besides giving them words of solace, that the best action I could take was to recite healing prayers.
So I asked all my other relatives to join me in saying the long healing prayer for the next 9 days for this dear soul. The next morning, as I was checking social media, I was surprised by how many dear friends were asking to include prayers for healing for relatives or friends in dire need. Honestly I felt saddened by all the suffering and loss everywhere and wanted to be able to do something. So I decided to post on social media that I would be saying the long healing prayer for any friends who need it.
Messages poured in with names of friends suffering from different ailments and who needed prayers. I filled in my first sheet of names on my prayer list, then a second and now a third sheet.
That day we had an inspiring discussion with our daughter about the power of prayer and how helpful it is to make lists of people for whom we want to pray. That phone call inspired me to ask my friends on social media to join me in saying the long healing prayer for the next 9 days. I was so thrilled to see how many friends indicated that they would also be reciting the long healing prayer.
Of course 9 days is short but I hope this will help create a habit of creating a daily prayer list to pray for others daily.
As many friends have shared that the long healing prayer set to music has helped them reduce anxiety, or help them sleep, I am sharing it below so friends can enjoy listening to the complete prayer recorded and sung.
If you have friends that you would like to add to my list for healing or if you would like to join me in the next 9 days reciting the long healing prayer, please let me know in the comments below.
