Prayer: Anselm of Canterbury

God of love, whose compassion never fails, we bring you the grief and perils of people and nations, the pains of the sick and injured, the sighing of prisoners and captives, the sorrows of the bereaved, the necessities of the homeless, the helplessness of the weak, the despair of the weary, the failing powers of the aged. Comfort and relieve them, O merciful Lord, according to their several needs and your great mercy.
