Most High God, your mercy and truth exceed all we can imagine. In hope we pray: God of all grace, hear us. 

Open our eyes to recognize Jesus in our midst.  

     God of all grace, hear us.  

Give patience and peace to those who wait for the return of a loved one, healing from illness, recovery from surgery, or the announcement of good news.  

     God of all grace, hear us. 

Strengthen those who are in recovery for addiction, and lead those who struggle with substance abuse to get help.  

     God of all grace, hear us. 

Our Father . . . 

May the God who gives breath and spirit to all release us from the power of sin and darkness and strengthen us to walk in the light of Christ. Amen.
