O Physician of our souls, heal us of our self-inflicted wounds and the several dis-eases others have thoughtlessly bequeathed us, and we them, and use us as your instruments in healing those we have wounded.
Mercy us into humility and gratitude, restore our souls to singing, our hearts to loving, our hands to doing justice.
Empower us to press on still and sturdily in the way you have shown us in Christ
until we know in our blood and bones that nothing can separate us from your love. Amen.
-Rev. Ted Loder
