Luke 4:40 As the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various kinds of diseases brought them to him; and he laid his hands on each of them and cured them.

Some days, I can feel the covering of prayers once prayed for me
Reaching to me in the here-and-now from the knees upon which she once knelt,
From love so deeply felt
Prayed with the quiet murmurs of her heart or some
agonizing plea
Carried before the Almighty on behalf of me—
That all should go well.
Prayers prayed to help me go through
Or to keep me from having to
Or perhaps, to help me recover when I do
Prayers for a victorious outcome
In whatever I had to come out from
Or to keep me, while coming, so I wouldn’t come undone.

MOVING FORWARD: Do a little research on the idea of prayer shawls or quilts.
