God of love, ever caring, ever strong,
stand by me in my time of need.
Grant me the strength to hope against
hope and the courage to greet
new day with peace.
Renew my faith in your healing forever,
and help me to put my trust entirely in you
in the days that lie ahead.
Watch over me in my pain and my fear.
Grant me your healing and your comfort.
And for those who minister to my
and soothe my suffering spirit,
grant hearts of compassion,
and kindly words.
