Morning Intercessions

Morning Intercessions

God of merciful love and justice, you alone have the power to save us. In hope we pray: God of lasting joy, hear our prayer.  

Help us to speak the truth with courage and love.  

     God of lasting joy, hear our prayer.  

Inspire effective practices to contain the coronavirus.  

     God of lasting joy, hear our prayer.  

Teach us how to re-create our bodies, minds, and hearts through holy leisure, solitude, and communal celebration.  

     God of lasting joy, hear our prayer.  

Our Father . . .  

May God establish our hearts in fear of the Lord so that we may see rightly, love tenderly, and walk humbly with God. Amen.
