O God, the Father of all, whose Son commanded us to love our enemies and those who wish us harm: Lead them and us from prejudice to truth: deliver them and us from hatred, cruelty, and revenge; and in your good time enable us all to stand reconciled before you. God, you have bound us together in a common life. Guide the people of this land, and of all the nations, in the midst of our struggles to work together with mutual forbearance and respect so that we may honor one another, serving the common good.
Receive Lord all who have died in the hope of the resurrection, and those whose faith is known to you alone, that, with all the saints, they may have rest in that place where there is no pain or grief, but life eternal. We pray for those who joined you in your heavenly kingdom this week, esp.
