Redeeming God, you are close to the brokenhearted. Hear us as we pray: Come, Lord Jesus. 

Transform the lives of those who are in prison, and free those who are unjustly accused.  

     Come, Lord Jesus.  

Help us to be patient with ourselves and with one another. 

     Come, Lord Jesus. 

Quicken the day when families separated by war, deportation, or political instability may be reunited.  

     Come, Lord Jesus. 

Our Father . . . 

May the peace of God be our quest and our aim, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
