Today we ask for comfort for all who need it.
Comfort those who are sick – people struggling with ongoing illness,
or living in chronic pain.
Comfort the caregivers – those who give so much to others
that they have nothing left.
Comfort the lonely – those who feel they have no support,
no one who cares or understands.
Comfort the regretful – those who live in the shadow of guilt.
Comfort the fearful – the many plagued by threats
both real and imagined.
Comfort those who wrestle with doubts –
those diligent seekers to whom you feel distant and elusive.
You, God, are the Spirit of Comfort.
You bring the peace that passes understanding.
Loving Comforter, be with all who grieve today.
