Almighty, Loving Creator, we offer up our thanks to You for your many blessings upon us.
Help us have the strength and wisdom to turn away from evil, no matter how small, and instead practice gentleness and charity. Accept our repentance, O Merciful God, for all our callousness and insensitivity, and guide us into faithfulness.
You, O Lord, are our mighty rock, a fortress to keep us safe: we put our trust in you.
Holy One, help us to turn our swords into plowshares and our stone hearts into hearts of flesh. Watch over all those who are threatened by storms, both within and without. Lord Jesus Christ, extend your comfort and blessing over all your beloved children.
