Almighty God, who inspired Your servant Luke the Physician to set forth in the Gospel the love and healing power of Your Son: Graciously continue in Your church the love and power to heal, to the praise and glory of Your Name, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Prayers of the People
Hear the prayer we offer for all your people. Remember in your mercy those for whom we pray:
Heal the sick, raise the fallen, strengthen the fainthearted and enfold in your love the fearful and those who have no hope. In the fullness of time complete your gracious work.
Reconcile all things in Christ and make them new. Restore us in your image, renew us in your love, that we may serve you as sons and daughters in your kingdom; through your anointed Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord, to whom with you and the Holy Spirit we lift our voices of thanks and praise:
Blessed be God, our strength and our salvation, now and for ever. Amen.
