Note: This week’s New Every Morning reflections are structured differently to follow the format of our featured title Holy Listening, which offers 40 daily meditations with scripture verses for lectio divina, a yoga pose, a breath prayer, and reflection questions.
Where do you long for God’s healing in your life? Where do you need God’s healing touch on your physical body? What would God’s healing look like in your life?
—Whitney R. Simpson, Holy Listening with Breath, Body, and the Spirit (Upper Room Books, 2016)

Exhale: place your healing hands on me.
Join the conversation.
Peace, peace, to the far and the near, says the Lord;
and I will heal them.
—Isaiah 57:19 (NRSV)
