abide within our hearts this day.
For your Name's sake,
lead us in paths of righteousness and mercy.
Make us humble in our thoughts,
gentle in our words,
and loving in our actions.
Give us hands that heal
and hearts that comfort
as we seek to embody your gospel.
May the twin lights of reconciliation and compassion
illuminate our path today
and bring comfort to the anxious.
May the Spirit of Hope
anoint the brow
of those who weep or worry,
and give them rest and peace.
