Prayer For a Person in Trouble

O merciful Father,

who hast taught us in thy holy Word that thou dost not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men:

Look with pity upon the sorrows of thy servant for whom our prayers are offered.

Remember him, O Lord, in mercy, nourish his soul with patience, comfort him with a sense of thy goodness, lift up thy countenance upon him, and give him peace;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
