Most Merciful God, we lift our souls to You in gratitude and joy: fill our hearts with your grace and compassion, we pray.
Show us your ways, O God, and give us the strength to walk in them to your glory. Fill us with the fire of the Spirit to sing forth your praise in our lives. Let us put our trust in you, Blessed Jesus, and love each other in fullness of hope.
Knit us together through your saving gospel, we pray, that our lives may proclaim your saving power. Bless the hands of the healers and the helpers, O Holy One, and grant respite especially to those who are ill.
Abide within us, O Savior, and draw within your embrace those we now name.
