Morning Prayer for those in Trouble or Bereavement

O merciful Father, who has taught us in your Holy Word that yo do not willingly afflict or grieve humankind: Look with pity upon the sorrows of your servants for whom our prayers are offered.  Remember them, O Lord, in mercy, nourish their souls with patience, comfort them with a sense of your goodness, lift up your countenance upon them and give them peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
