Come Holy Spirit, and heal our hearts. Bring us together, unified in body, heart, and soul, to soothe the sorrowing and comfort the afflicted. Give us hands and hearts and will to do your work, O God, that justice rolls down to restore the land. May we seek reconciliation as the foundation for true peace in both our relationships and in the world. May we stand with brothers and sisters in time of mourning or in time of trial: we pray for your peace and grace to bear them up. We rest and renew our spirits in the loving arms of God: Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer. Bless us with holy wisdom, O Loving One, and hear the prayers of your people.
