Heal Those I Have Wounded

O Lord God,
almighty and all merciful,
heal those I have wounded,
strengthen those I have weakened,
set right those I have misled,
call back to yourself those I have alienated from you.
Amen.

Transform Loneliness into Comfort

Lord Jesus,
you were alone
in your suffering on the cross.
Be near those who are alone
in their pain and sorrow today.
Let your gracious presence
transform their loneliness into comfort,
since you are the sure refuge
of the weary and heavy laden.
Amen.
