A Healing Prayer for Rev. Alexandra Dyer, RC Woman Priest Victim of Caustic Liquid Drano Attack

Dear Friends,

Our priest sister Rev. Alexandra Dyer of St. Albans, New York is in need of your prayers as she struggles for life, strength and healing in the Burn Unit after the horrendous attack of Wednesday August 19,2015 when an unknown assailant threw a liquid Drano- like substance in her face and eyes. (The NY Post account is in an earlier blog).

Our Sister priest, Rev. Dr. Gloria Carpeneto of RCWP-USA-East has written this beautiful litany of healing and we hope that you will pray it with us.

We also include the assailant and all those who act violently toward others in our prayers, that they might own up to their devastating actions and turn to God for forgiveness,healing and peace.

Rev. Dr. Judy Lee, RCWP

A Healing Litany for Alexandra

Together we lift our prayers to you, O God of love and healing.

Loving God,  you breathe life into your whole Creation.
Help us breathe deeply of your peace and presence.

Gracious God, you give us yourself to make our joy complete.
Help us give our fear, pain, and grief to you.

Compassionate God, you move through our lives in unexpected ways.
Help us move in concert with you, as we walk the labyrinth of our lives.   

God who is Goodness, Compassion and Love, accept our thanks and praise for all the blessings of this life, especially for those graces that in this time of our friend’s suffering are difficult to see.
Divine Healer, hear our prayer.

Shed the light of your healing love on Alexandra, whose pain and suffering this day are beyond anything we can even comprehend.
Divine Healer, hear our prayer.

May she know deeply the love and support of her partner, Nelson … of her family … of her sister priests … and of all those whose hearts hold her tightly today.
Divine Healer, hear our prayer.

Grant that Alexandra may have hope in her future, courage and perseverance as she walks her healing journey.
Divine Healer, hear our prayer.

Bless all those medical professionals who will work with her; give them loving patience, wisdom, and skills during the many hours they will spend with her.
Divine Healer, hear our prayer.

Hold us in the palm of your hand as we strive to move beyond the anger and the horror we feel toward the perpetrator of this crime, and keep us on the path of understanding and loving forgiveness.
Divine Healer, hear our prayer.

For these and for all other petitions that are too deep for words, we pray to you
Divine Healer, hear our prayer.

You are the God whose promises never cease.
You are our brother, Jesus, whose presence never fails.
You are the Spirit who will brood  over our sister Alexandra, and bring her back into the fullness of life. 

We place Alexandra in your hands, as we place our trust in your tender, compassionate, and healing love.
