Faith Voices: Canticle of Healing – Rev. Dr. Neema Caughran

Light of Spirit, please hear our prayers:

For the dying and the ill
Send the light of solace

For the violated and rejected
Send the angels of healing

For the wounded and killed in war
Send the balm of peace

For the poor and homeless
Send the heart of compassion

For the betrayed and abandoned
Send the guardians of love

For the earth and all our relations
Let there be reconciliation

For the immigrants and refugees
Send the champions of hospitality

For the mass of humanity
without a country
without food
without parents
in poverty
alone and bereft
May our hearts break open
May we bear suffering in your name
Make our souls a home for the homeless
And a refuge for the poor
Grant us the strength to be beacons of peace.
