Bless and keep us, Loving One, and hold us in the hollow of your hand. Give rest to the weary and justice to the oppressed, Lord Christ, using us as the instruments of your mercy. Make us strong in the ways of wisdom and peace, and help us to put aside our hurtful ways. Shield us from those who wish us ill, and help us live lives of authentic grace and compassion, immersed in your gospel of love. We ask that your Spirit of Healing and Comfort rest upon those we now name, and grant them peace.
