We call for your mercy on those from whom we are estranged,

by our own fault or despite our deepest hopes,

that your reconciliation may bind us together again.

O God, in your mercy: Hear our prayer.

We call for your mercy on all who seek your truth,

that the seeds of wisdom would take root in every heart,

and that knowledge would bring joy and gladness.

O God, in your mercy: Hear our prayer.

that your healing power would be with them and restore them to life.

O God, in your mercy: Hear our prayer.

We seek our mercy on this church,

that we would be strengthened in love for one another

for we pray together in him, saying:
