God of unity, you are peace for all who turn to you in need. In trust we pray: Favor us, O God. 

Lead all people to find work that is meaningful and befits their human dignity.  

Favor us, O God. 

Hear the prayers of caregivers and strengthen them by your grace.  

Favor us, O God. 

Give perseverance, patience, and hope to those who are undergoing medical treatment for illness. 

Favor us, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May the peace of God stand guard over our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
