May's Prayer To The God Of My Life- Jehovah Rapha

The beginning of the summer weather has certainly brought joy to my heart during this strange time of lockdown. God's mercies truly are new every morning! I'm also eternally grateful for His wonderful healing powers and I've been watching Jehovah Rapha at work within my own family recently. I wrote this little verse months ago but it's more poignant today than ever for me. Oh praise Jehovah Rapha!
May's Prayer To The God Of My Life-Jehovah Rapha:

"Behold, a prayer to the God of my life,
Oh hail The Great Physician!
Jehovah Rapha, the God who heals!
Who cures each dark condition."

John 5:1-8
"After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralysed, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had. Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?”

The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.”

Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.” And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked."
