From the streets, the marketplace, our homes; from places of work, leisure, comfort, or loss, we cry out for your mercy, healing God. We trust that you hear our innermost concerns not only in this hour but at all times. We speak aloud our deepest joys and troubles, praying for a renewed confidence that you are closer and more caring than we know. Open our eyes to receive your blessing once again, that we may carry it out into your world needing it in equal measure. Amen.
