Prayer 1442: for renewal and reconciliation
Loving One, we thank You for welcoming us into this day, and keeping watch over us by night.
Renew a right spirit within us, that we may be reconciled with all creation, we pray.
Soothe our souls within your embrace, Lord Jesus: we rest upon your breast, and are content.
Take us by the hand, O Savior, and let us place our hearts within yours, abiding in grace and peace for ever.
May we walk the way of compassion and healing, for we know that goodness and mercy follow in your wake, Lord Christ.
Place your hand of blessing and power, O Holy One, upon us, and on those whom we now remember before You.
