|Trust in love. It really is the answer.|
Most Merciful God, who sustains us and broods over us, holding us in a mother's embrace, we gather before you in love. Accept our heartfelt repentance for our manifold weaknesses, and renew and restore our hearts in your grace, we humbly pray. Teach us gentleness, humility, and kindness, that we may live in unity and peace with all creation. Envelop in your care all those who are in danger, sorrow, or troubled in any way, Lord Christ, for you are our refuge. Holy One, we commend to your abiding love all who seek You, and rest your peace upon those we now name.
