For One Who Is Hurting


God, your peace,
Your comfort,
Your healing presence.

Send them into
The places of deep sadness,
The wounds,
The disappointments,
The tears and aching heart.

Touch the tear-lined cheek
With your kiss of peace.

Hold your child close,
For she is full of sorrow.
Hold him close,
For he feels all alone.

Bring comfort and healing,
Balm for broken hearts,
Freedom from fear,
And courage to face forward.

You are the Miracle Worker,
The Great Healer,
The Mender of the Breach.

Come, now,
Come, quickly,
