Blessed Jesus, may we rise like the morning mist off the lake to give you thanks and praise for this day. May we hear the song of birds, and join our voices in the chorus of praise to God throughout creation.
We thank you for the lives of saints who live among us, and ask your help in living as witnesses to your grace and truth. Be with all who suffer fear or pain this day, O God, and watch over and welcome those whose lives are in distress. Holy One, guide the hands and hearts of the healers, especially the doctors, nurses and social workers who tend the sick.
We ask your favor to rest especially upon those for whom we now pray.
