A prayer suggested by the writings of St. Augustine
Father, we pray on behalf of those
who cannot reach out to you at this moment.
Protect those who are facing adversity.
Strengthen those who need courage.
Keep watch over those who weep.
Tend the sick, give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering.
Dear Lord, let the victims of cruelty and oppression
know that you are with them at this moment. Amen.
