Prayer 1297- for those who teach and heal
Holy, Holy, Holy: we sing our thanks to God this day, and place ourselves within the bounds of the love of God.
Most Merciful God, place your compassionate spirit within our hearts, we humbly pray. May we act to heal and restore the hurts we encounter within ourselves and within each other. May we live our lives in each moment as testimony to the mercy, justice, and lovingkindness we are called to embody. May we be forces of reconciliation and peace even within the storms we encounter. May we open our hearts and minds to be guided and molded by the wisdom and knowledge of the Holy One.
Holy Redeemer, encompass us within your abiding care, and envelop within your love those we now name.
