Most Merciful God, accept our humble offerings to You of our life and love as we make our prayer to You.
Forgive us our willful disregard for each other, and restore us to communion and trust, we pray.
Give us grace to allow love to heal our wounded relationships, that we may be one body, made in your image.
Make us holy, a priestly people serving You and each other in love, O God, and bring us into unity with all creation.
Place your hand of blessing over all who ache, or mourn, or seek a way through difficulties.
Spirit of Light and Truth, bless us, and pour out your balm of blessing over those we remember before You.
