We give you thanks for the gift of life
Especially in times like these
when all lives are being challenged.

Lead us through the trials
the suffering and sorrow
the fears and struggles
the tired times and dark places.

Be with those who weep
or cannot sleep
who have no peace
who seek release
who are suffering
who are dying

Lead us
with grace
with love
with peace
Fill us
with hope
with patience
with stamina

Transform us
in your image
as the one who
grieves with us
an as the one who
loves deeply

Transform us
to grow
to understand
to see

Transform us
that we
can be
made whole

And in wholeness
may we
be Your
hands and heart in the world.
