Health care reform resources

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has a number of Prayer and Liturgy Resources regarding health care reform, available here. One of them is a Prayer for the Uninsured:
Father of goodness and love,
hear our prayers for the uninsured members of our community
and for all who are in need.
For those who seek care but find that it is out of reach,
may they find consolation in your healing presence.
For all who are blessed with health and security,
may they work to fulfill the needs of those who are sick and insecure.

For leaders who make decisions that affect the health and well-being of others,
may they strive to ensure the fundamental right to health care.
We ask this through Christ our Lord
who healed those who believed.
