1. I pray for all who suffer,
For the dying,
And the dead;
2. For those who have to live
With what they did,
And what they said;
3. For all they loved,
And all they hurt,
And all those who hurt them:
4. Forgive us, Lord,
And heal us all; have mercy –
1. Moses prayed for the people (Numbers 21:7; NLT).
2. Bless those who curse you, pray for those who hurt you (Luke 6:28; NLT).
3. Love your enemies (Luke 6:27; NLT).
4. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us (Matthew 6:12; NLT).
Come, let us return to the Lord. He has torn us to pieces but now he will heal us; he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds (Hosea 6:1; NIV).
Have mercy on us, Lord, have mercy (Psalm 123:3; NLT).
Who then will condemn us? No one – for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honour at God’s right hand, pleading for us (Romans 8:34; NLT).
