O Lord my God, thank you that you are my ever-present help in times of trouble. You said that I should love my enemies and pray for those who persecute me. In friendships that have broken down, I pray that you would help me love. In relationships that are in conflict, would you help me to pray. Hear my prayer for the restoration of my relationships. May your peace be in my heart, your grace be in my words, your love be in my hands and your joy be in my soul. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
