10:23 am - 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.

(4 lit candles | Light a candle)

Wow. That is really beautiful. I love it. I especially love the " not willing afflict or grieve the children of men"

That line is actually from the book of Lamentations. I love how much scripture is actually in the Book of Common Prayer. :)
