Gracious God we bring to you our worries and concerns
Hold them tenderly, like a mother, close to heart.
Transform our fears and still our rapid heart
fill us with your peace. Let there be hope.
God of love, be with those who are ill, suffering
in mind, body, or spirit. Be with those struggling
to recover from the hurricane, those without
power, food, heat – the basic necessities of life-
Restore them to wholeness,
as only you can in your grace.
Fill us with your peace.
Let there be hope.
Dear God, we lift up to you our Veterans
and those who have served or do serve
in harms way. Protect them, and this world, too.
Fill us with your peace, that there may be hope.
God of all, we give you thanks
for all the blessings of this life.
For the morning sun and rays of light.
For the moon and stars and gentle rain
For fresh fallen snow and birds that sing
For all our blessings.
May there be peace.
