In times of weakness and hour of need, yours Lord, is the strength by which we carry on, the shoulder we rest our head upon.
When our load is heavy and too much to bear, yours are the arms stretched out to help us the grace that we depend on.
In our hour of need, your voice is heard, ‘Come… find rest.’
This is grace divine, the path we tread to wholeness of body and spirit, the path that leads to you,
and we thank you. We pray in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit Amen.
Father give us a consistent kindness and compassion for others. Keep us always tender hearted even when those around us deliver difficult blows and setbacks. Teach us once again about your redeeming grace in order that we may learn, however slowly and however tentatively, how to forgive others. And remind us that we are among your forgiven and beloved community. We pray in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
