Prayer to Christ the Healer
In the comfort of your love,
I pour out to you my Savior,
The memories that haunt me,
The anxieties that perplex me,
The fears that stifle me,

Your compassion in my sorrow,
And your love in my need.
Touch me, O Lord, with your healing power and strength.

Since this is the jubilee, which shall be sacred for you, you may not eat of its produce, except as taken directly from the field. “In this year of jubilee, then, every one of you shall return to his own property. Therefore, when you sell any land to your neighbor or buy any from him, do not deal unfairly. On the basis of…
