God of grace and mercy,
your son Jesus wept at the tomb of his friend Lazarus.
Send your Holy Spirit on those who grieve,
any who struggle, and all who fear.
Meet us in our times of questioning, anger, and doubt.
Show us what we can do to enable one another
to overcome isolation, distress, and despair.
And make us a humbler people who know our need of you.
In Christ’s name. Amen.
