Tender God, you care for our tears and shower your love upon us. In trust we pray: Hold us in your mercy, O God.  

The unfolding of your Word gives light: shed your wisdom upon those who hold positions of authority.  

Hold us in your mercy, O God. 

Your utterance gives life: speak your love to those who are making difficult decisions.  

Hold us in your mercy, O God. 

Your reign is forever: give unending life to those who have died. 

Hold us in your mercy, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May the love of God, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with us and remain with us. Amen.
