Morning Intercessions

Morning Intercessions

Nurturing God, you embrace all of life in your tender mercy. Mindful of the compassion shown to us in the sacred heart of Jesus we pray: God, in your love, hear us.  

You comfort your people: satisfy the needs of those who are lonely, lost, or forsaken.  

     God, in your love, hear us.  

You show mercy to the afflicted: send your ready help to those who suffer chronic illness.  

     God, in your love, hear us.  

You hold us in the palm of your hand: extend our prayer and your mercy to those who feel forgotten or neglected.  

     God, in your love, hear us.  

Our Father . . .  

May God bless us with full knowledge of the height and depth of God’s love for us in Christ Jesus. Amen.
