This is a prayer from Rabbi Michele Medwin. Written as she was reflecting on the traditional Mi Sheberach prayer and wanted to adapt it for someone dealing with chronic illness.
Mi Sheberach for Chronic Illness
Eternal God, we ask mercy and compassion
For those who are burdened with chronic illness.
Give them strength and courage
To face the daily challenges in their lives.
Compassionate One, give them and their loved ones hope for the future
And at the same time, acceptance of the present.
Help them find a path towards spiritual wholeness. Be by their side.
Help them to know that You are with them at all times, even in times of doubt.
Source of Healing, comfort them and bring healing to their souls.
Rabbi Michele Medwin.
