A prayer by Tim, a member of our church:

Wounded Healer, be with us so we can be with others in fear and grief and loneliness.

Light of the world, keep us awake to others’ suffering so we can be a part of waking up to the needs of the world.

Patient Father, help us have faith in others to learn from darkness – like you had the faith in us to leave us with your spirit.

Eternal spirit, give us the humility needed to acknowledge our strengths and our blind-spots so we can do what we can great or small. To work as part of your great team. Help us learn from our experiences and each other. To Listen well in our helping. To see you in those who suffer and to remember the powerless and the most vulnerable.
