Keep watch, Love, with all those keeping watch tonight, all those who are ill and tending the sick, all those who are restless, all those who are afraid, all those who watching for trouble and intervening before trouble overwhelms and tears us apart. Keep watch, Love, with all those keeping watch tonight. Keep safe, Mercy, all those in danger tonight, all who are suffering and struggling, all who are despairing, all who are at risk from violence and from other forms of harm. Keep safe, Mercy, all those in danger tonight. Keep open, Love, all our hearts and homes tonight, that we are ready to keep watch, to welcome, to companion, to pray with, to hold, to make refuge for, and to carry one another to safety, to hope, to peace, to another day. Amen.
