Compassionate God, in Jesus you show empathy for our weakness. With confidence we pray: Have mercy on us, O God.  

Comfort and console those who feel abandoned, ignored, or forgotten.  

Have mercy on us, O God. 

Heal those who have experienced betrayal or breach of trust.  

Have mercy on us, O God. 

Prosper the labor of farmers, gardeners, and all who work the land.  

Have mercy on us, O God. 

Our Father . . .  

May God give us grace to accept the things we cannot change, courage to change what we can, and wisdom to know the difference, through Jesus our brother. Amen.
