The Mothers' Union, Living Positively, "Prayers and Reflections" Merciful God, we remember before you all who are sick this day, and especially all persons with AIDS or HIV infection. Give them courage to live with their disease. Help them to face and overcome their fears. Be with them when they are alone or rejected. Comfort them when they are discouraged. And touch them with your healing Spirit that they may find and possess eternal life, now and forever. Amen. Anglican Cycle of Prayer
