May God’s love cast out all fear,
and surround you with
safety, compassion, and care.
May God’s grace remind you that,
in the midst of increasing demands,
you are enough and truly beloved in Christ.
May God’s power through the Spirit
be sufficient for you
in the midst of loss, grief, and human limitations.
May the faithfulness of Christ
— in life, suffering, death, and resurrection —
give you hope and faith to serve in His footsteps
in the coming days and weeks.
