Lord Jesus Christ,
You called us to love one another as you love us.
You called us to care for one another as though we were caring for you.
In this time, help us to bring your hope to one another.
Help us to calm the fearful, the angry, the lonely.
Help us to bless the sick and comfort the bereaved.
Help us to assure others of your loving presence in our midst.
In your name we pray.
