We pray that the Church may have such maturity and wisdom that we may not be swayed from our purpose and calling by trivialities or world pressures, but know increasingly our dependence on the Lord in all things and proclaim his Gospel with steadfastness and joy.
May all monarchs, leaders and heads of state be given graciousness and integrity, that all in power and authority may undertake their duties in a spirit of humility; that the oppressed may find a voice and the nations work together for the good of the world.
May all our homes and places of work and leisure know and radiate the Lord’s harmony and peace; may we have the grace to respect one another and ourselves in the way we talk and think, and in the way we behave.
We pray for peace in the hearts of all who are agitated, anxious or confused. We pray that the Lord may lay his hands of healing on all who are ill, that they may know his reassurance and love.
May all who have kept faith be welcomed into the kingdom and lay their burdens down. May they rest in peace for ever.
