We pray for our bishops, priests and deacons, and all who are called to the different ministries in the Church. May they be blessed as they work in the service of the Lord.
We pray for all peace initiatives and every genuine attempt at negotiation in conflict resolution. May those who govern be governed by the Father’s love; may those who lead be led by the Spirit’s directing; may the whole world come to know its need of Christ.
We pray for our families and friends, for those we meet each day and those we seldom see; may all our loved ones be drawn closer to the Lord. May he search our those whose faith is fragile or fragmented.
As we recall the needs of those who are sad or lonely, lost, or afraid of what they have become, we pray for the knowledge of the Father’s love to wrap warmly around them, and his living presence to bring them to a place of safety and hope.
We pray for those who have recently died; may they enjoy the eternal life of heaven, where there is no more pain, sorrow or weariness, and every tear shall be wiped away.
