Here’s a prayer of petition and commitment inspired by the suggested scripture readings for Epiphany 5, Year B. It comes from the Vanderbilt Divinity Library website.
(inspired by Isaiah 40:28-31, Mark 1:29-39)
you give strength to the powerless
and power to the faint;
you raise up the sick
and cast out demons.
Make us agents of healing and wholeness,
that your good news may be made known
to the ends of your creation. Amen.
