“Wonderful God, with all our hearts and with all our minds, we pray to you. We pray for your peace from above, for your loving-kindness, and for the salvation of our souls.
We pray for our community, and for those who live in it. We pray for the aged and infirm, for the widowed and orphans, and for the sick and the suffering. We pray for the poor and the oppressed, for the unemployed and the destitute, and for prisoners and captives and for all who remember and care for them.
We pray that we and others may end our lives in faith and hope. Defend us, deliver us, and in your compassion protect us, O Lord, by your grace. AMEN”
