Provident God, you comfort us in our affliction. In faith we pray to you: Give us peace, O God. 

Grant patience and hope to those who wait for healing, a good word, or the return of a loved one. 

Give us peace, O God. 

Strengthen health-care workers, and safeguard them from fatigue and illness. 

Give us peace, O God. 

Send your Spirit upon hospice workers and all who sit with the dying. 

Give us peace, O God. 

Our Father . . . May God accept our contrition and gird us with joy, through Jesus, the mercy of God. Amen.
