My Prayer for You
God of love and compassion, help us to care for our neighbors—especially
those who are suffering from grave illnesses and are in the critical and
terminal phases of their lives. May we be persons of comfort and hope, Good
Samaritans who spare no expense in giving our time, talent and treasure to
accompany them in their final days. Amen.
