Hear our prayers as we come before you.
Hear the ones who are crying with pain in their heart.
Hear the ones who are weeping with grief long into the night.
Hear the ones who are sobbing in their loneliness.
Heal their pain.
Restore their lives
Mend their broken hearts.
Lead us through the dark valleys.
Lead us through troublesome times.
Lead us to our home with you.
Teach us to listen to your voice,
That we may hear the cry of the needy and respond.
Teach us to love that
We may offer care that brings others to you for healing.
Teach us to lead,
With your vision so that we not lead others blindly through life.
Through your son who taught us to pray:
