We pray that the Spirit may fill the Church with such joy in believing that all Christians overflow with love, compassion, generosity and humility.
May God’s power and justice fill the arenas of leadership and conflict with sharpened consciences and with courage, so that wise decisions are made, needs met and wrongs righted.
May God’s gentleness and truth fill every home with new insight and greater understanding. Break down the divisive barriers and build up our capacity to love.
May God’s attentive caring fill us with practical compassion; may all who suffer be heard, comforted and cared for. May there be healing for both their situation and our hardness of heart.
May God unending being fill death with life and the dying with hope. May we all be prepared for life which lasts for ever.
