Most Merciful and Most Compassionate help us find and create the healing we and this earth need, remembering that now is the time for healing and for hope. Help us remember that now has ever been the time, even while we are fleeing for safety, even as we are confronting those who would belittle and injure us or others through cruelty and ill use. Most Merciful and Most Compassionate help us remember the best part of who we are and who we can be and bring healing and hope to each other and to this earth. May we stop the depredations and the desecration, the evil that is so easy to do and the harm that has become habit. May we turn instead back to mercy and compassion, back to a generosity of spirit that is borne out in words and deeds, that eases our thirst and ends our hunger and recalls us to the kinder people we can be. Most Merciful and Most Compassion help us find and create the healing we and this earth need, remembering that now is the time for healing and for hope. May we bear each other and this earth up and on with lovingkindness that challenges and changes us all. Amen.
