A Prayer of Courage and Consolation

Because there is hate, dear God,
help us heal our fractured and broken world.
 
Because there is fear, dear God,
grant courage and faith to those in need.
 
Because there is pain, dear God,
bring healing to the shattered and wounded.
 
Because there is hope, dear God,
teach us to be a force for justice and kindness.
 
Because there is love, dear God,
help us to be a beacon of light and compassion.
 
As it is written,
be strong and let your heart have courage,
depart from evil, do good, seek peace and pursue it.
