Oh Lord, you who told us that we would have trouble in this world, we confess to you: our worries over things that we cannot control, our distress over things that seem wrongheaded, and our frustration with those who oppose us on things that we hold dearly. Grant us the ability to bear with one another in love, along with an abundance of patience and humility, and may the peace of God guard our hearts and minds, so that together we might trust your leading and walk in the way of unity that only the Spirit of Christ can make possible. Amen.
