For The Comfort Of Christ’s Presence

O Lord Jesus Christ,

who yourself did weep beside the grave,
and are touched with the feeling of our sorrows;
fulfill now your promise that you will not leave your people comfortless,
but will come to them.

Reveal yourself unto your afflicted servants,
and cause them to hear you saying,
I am the resurrection and the life.

Help them, O Lord, to turn to you with true discernment,
and to abide in you through living faith,
that finding now the comfort of your presence,
they may have also a sure confidence in you 
for all that is to come:
until the day break,
and these shadows flee away.

Hear us for your great mercy’s sake,
O Jesus Christ, our Lord.
