Prayer of Petition
(inspired by Psalm 51:12)

Restore to us the joy of your salvation, Lord. 
May refugees be restored to safety. 
May flooded land be restored to fertile ground. 
May broken hearts be restored to wholeness. 
May fearful lives be restored to peaceful rest. 
May compassion fatigue be restored to hopeful perseverance. 
Restore to us the joy of your salvation, Lord. 
Grant in us a willing spirit to sustain us. 
Amen.
