Morning Intercessions

Morning Intercessions

Majestic God, you chose Mary to be the Mother of our Lord. Gather your Church together under her protective care as we pray: God of all grace, hear our prayer.  

Mary prayed and was given prudence: guide the discernment of those who seek your desire for them. 

     God of all grace, hear our prayer.  

Mary pleaded and was given wisdom: direct our leaders to listen for the prompting of the Spirit.  

     God of all grace, hear our prayer.  

Mary trusted and was given peace: deepen the faith of all believers.  

     God of all grace, hear our prayer.  

Our Father . . .  

May God heal the Church of division, guard her in love, and bring us together to everlasting life in Jesus. Amen.
