Prayer for Recovery of Mind and Body:

Restore to me my feet, my body, my mind, and my voice.
Take away your spell from me today, remove your spell from me today.

You have taken it away from me! It has departed far from me - you have taken it far away from me.

I recover in a magnificent fashion. My eyes regain their strength; happily the spell is removed. I walk without pain, I walk with light within. Thus happily you accomplish your works.

With happiness the aged will regard you and the children will look toward you. They will regard you with happiness as they return home. May their trials homeward be prevaded with peace and may all of them return.
