Two prayers for the sick and housebound

For all who are imprisoned
through sickness or fear,
unable or unwilling
to set foot
beyond the door
of that called home,
where the world beyond
can only be glimpsed
through window pane,
newspaper print
or TV screen -
Bring wholeness
into these fragile lives,
bring release
even for a little while,
bring healing
of body, mind and soul.
May the door
which confines them
be opened wide,
and the beauty
within their lives
become a blessing for us all.
