Dear Lord God, we thank you that you are a forgiving God,
who wipes out all the wrongs from the past,
and starts anew with us today.
Bring healing and comfort to those who are anxious,
upset, lonely, or ill today;
encourage those who help and care for them.
May all who suffer be led from pain to peace.
We give you thanks for your loving mercy
shown to us in Jesus Christ,
who endured the suffering of the cross
to overcome all that separates us from you,
and was raised up to new life.
Strengthen our faith in the victory of the cross
and the hope of eternal life.
Help us to grow in the life which does not end,
in love and friendship with you,
which lasts for ever;
through your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ.
