Almighty God be gracious to us,
bless us in your mercy,
and shine your face upon us.

O God our God, Wellspring of Life: to you is due all praise and thanksgiving. Yours is the peace that passes understanding. Yours is the mystery that invites faith. Yours is the love that endures beyond our patience. With heaven and earth, with angels and all creation, we worship you.

Be gracious to us,
bless us in your mercy,
and shine your face upon us.

Jesus Christ, our Healing and our Comfort: come and help us, we pray. We are hurting, we are lonely, we are at a loss for clarity — and it seems like a long time that we have been waiting to be made well. Be with us. Stay with us. We are eager for your words of hope, your presence of love, your consolation of joy.

Be gracious to us,
bless us in your mercy,
and shine your face upon us, we pray.

Sweet Wisdom, Spirit of Vision and Truth: prepare our hearts and hands for the work of love. Shed light on our journeys that we might follow you more closely. Tune our songs to your glory, make our lives for your testimony, and compel our communities to reveal your good news in grace and mutuality.

Almighty God be gracious to us,
bless us in your mercy,
and shine your face upon us.

Amen.
