Prayer

Certain people and their specific personal situations have been on my mind. And this prayer seems just right:

Watch now, dear Lord, with those who wake, or watch, or weep tonight, and give your angels charge over those who sleep. Tend your sick ones, O Lord Christ; rest your weary ones, bless your dying ones, soothe your suffering ones, pity your afflicted ones, shield your joyous ones; and all for your love’s sake. Amen.

It is from the service of prayers for healing in the Church of Scotland's Service book, Common Order.
