Loving and gracious Creator, when we are separated from those we love, strengthen us to do your will. When we face risks because of our faith in you, take away our anxiousness and replace it with resolute will. When we are criticized, give us an ample good humor and make us gracious to those who find fault. When we face loss, remind us of your constant love and presence. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
