The Healing

The Healing

by Katy Kauffman

The ache I’ve felt in my soul

The desire to be made whole

The longings that have gone unmet

The pain I want to forget


A Healer I’ve needed and prayed for

The Calmer of the stormy roar

My Hero in difficult battles

The Releaser of chains and shackles


Hope starts to sing once again

He rides on the wings of the wind

The Healer reaches in and holds my heart

Breathes life and healing into every part


The pain and anguish have been soothed

The darkness cries and begins to move

Out of my heart and out of my life

My soul rejoices to find the light


I can stand up again, straight and tall

He holds my hand, lest I fall

I lean on Him, my Healer and Guide

My heavenly Father who will provide


He will keep His promises, they will come true

I will give Him my all, He’ll see me through

The troubling and uncertain times that lie ahead

My heart is now safe, my soul is fed


His fellowship will see me through dark valleys

His presence will brighten lonesome alleys

My heart beats strongly once again

In Him I have a faithful friend


I’m ready to love others and share the truth

My story of pain and healing is the proof

That He’s real and catches every tear

That He heals those who to Him draw near


My heart is ready to do great feats

For His name as He makes me complete

This joy I’ve never known before

This love I will cherish forevermore

If you have never surrendered your life to Christ, and would like to know Him in the way that Katy does,  you can start today. Simply say this prayer and your journey with Christ will begin:


Lord Jesus, I want to trust you from now on. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of my life. Make me be the person You want me to be. Thank you for enabling me to trust you in these uncertain times. Amen.

Another Sample Prayer:

Dear God, today I bring you my life, my hopes, my dreams, my deepest yearnings … You know me intimately. You knew me even before I was formed in the womb. You called me into this world to do good and live the life I was uniquely and specifically created for. I ask for Courage and Wisdom to live this life–the life of my dreams. Show me where to start and help me be open to hearing your Voice today. I ask for a greater consciousness of your Presence, today and every day of my life. Amen.

If you prayed this prayer we would love to hear from you . If you would like to know God deeper we can connect you with an email mentor and/or send you some great links.
