For a Person in Trouble or Bereavement

From the Book of Common Prayer, for all on my friendslist who are going through rough times right now.

O merciful Father, who hast taught us in thy holy Word that
thou dost not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men:
Look with pity upon the sorrows of thy children for whom
our prayers are offered. Remember then, O Lord, in mercy,
nourish their souls with patience, comfort them with a sense of
thy goodness, lift up thy countenance upon them, and give
them peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
