God of endless love,
ever caring, ever strong,
always present, always just:
You gave your only Son 
to save us by the blood of his cross.

Gentle Jesus, shepherd of peace,
join to your own way suffering
the pain of all who have been hurt 
in body, mind, and spirit
by those who betrayed the trust placed in them.

Hear our cries as we agonize 
over the harm done to our brothers and sisters.
Breathe wisdom into our prayers,
soothe restless hearts with hope,
steady shaken spirits with faith:
Show us the way to justice and wholeness,
enlightened by truth and enfolded in your mercy.

Holy Spirit, comforter of hearts,
heal your people’s wounds 
and transform our brokenness.
Grant us courage and wisdom, humility and grace,
so that we may act with justice 
and find peace in you.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.

Amen.
