as we gather in community to praise your saving help.
Forgive us our sins,
and lead us into a new life of healing and compassion.
May we empty our hearts of all
that separates us from living in the love of God.
May we walk in your ways, Lord Christ,
reflecting your care for the poor and the oppressed.
May we testify through our lives
that you are the Messiah, the Son of the Living God.
Holy One, place your healing hands
upon all who are anxious, hurting, or lost,
and comfort those who mourn.
Bless and keep all those we now name,
O Shepherd of Our Souls.
