Healing Prayer at Bedtime

Lord Jesus,
through the power of the holy spirit,
go back into my memory as I sleep,
Every hurt that has ever been done to me,
heal that hurt.
Every hurt that I have ever caused
another person, heal that hurt.
All the relationships that have been
damaged in my whole life
that I am not aware of,
heal those relationships.
But, Lord,
if there is anything that I need to do,
If I need to go to a person
because he or she is still suffering
from my hand,
bring to my awareness that person,
I choose to forgive,
and I ask to be forgiven,
Remove whatever bitterness
may be in my heart, Lord,
and fill the empty spaces with your love,
Amen.

That really is wonderful.

And then upon rising the next morning one should always pray the Humility Litany of Cardinal Merry del Val to keep further hurts from happening.
