Morning Intercessions

Morning Intercessions

God of our ancestors, by your strong arm you redeemed your people. With trust in your saving power we pray: O God, reveal to us your way of peace.  

Advance local, national, and international negotiations for cooperation and collaboration toward environmental sustainability.  

     O God, reveal to us your way of peace.  

Help us to stop the proliferation of war weapons and to address the cries for vengeance. 

     O God, reveal to us your way of peace.  

Comfort the grieving, and enlighten us to know that you are present in our transitions.  

     O God, reveal to us your way of peace.  

Our Father . . .  

May God bless us with a spirit of wisdom and revelation, that we may know the hope to which Christ has called us, through the working of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
