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