Holy God, you are our refuge in times of trouble. In trust we pray: 

O God, make haste to help us.  

Inspire religious and faith communities who are reconfiguring or adapting to changing circumstances. 

O God, make haste to help us.  

Prosper efforts to restore life to communities devastated by environmental disaster or human destruction. 

O God, make haste to help us.  

Strengthen and guide health-care workers, first responders, and those who work through the night. 

O God, make haste to help us.  

Our Father . . .  

May we prefer nothing to the love of Christ, and may he bring us together to everlasting life. Amen.
