(by Henry Law)
Throughout the wide earth, many of Your people this night are lying down in misery and pain. Their consciences accuse of sin; their minds are harassed by tormenting and foreboding thoughts; personal and relative anxieties hold their eyes waking. Permit us to commend their wretchedness to You, their great Creator and Savior. You have . . .
a balm for every wound,
a solace for every anguish,
a remedy for every pain,
a deliverance from every impossible situation,
and a peace for all disquietude.
Hear our prayer for these, Your people, and grant help. You can change their ‘night of darkness’ into joyful light. Holy Spirit, reveal Jesus to them—which will give them unmixed blessedness. We thus implore You, for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.
