Restore us, O LORD God of Hosts! Let your face shine that we may be saved. You have fed us with the bread of tears, and given us tears to drink in full measure. You made us an object of contention for our neighbors, and our enemies laugh among themselves. Restore us to your favor. Have compassion on your beloved as we turn from our ways to your steadfast and proven way of peace. Return our health. Revive our faith. Remake us in your glorious image once again. Draw us to your heart of gold. Wrap your forgiveness around us. Allow us to touch the hem of your robe that fills the temple one more time. Restore us, O LORD God of Hosts! Let your face shine that we may be saved in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“Restore us, O God; let your face shine, that we may be saved!” (Psalm 80: 3 ESV)
