Morning Intercessions

Morning Intercessions

God our refuge, you rescue us in times of danger. In hope we pray: O God, send us your loving mercy. 

You provide for our needs: protect first responders and those who are working on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis.  

     O God, send us your loving mercy.  

You awaken the dawn: help us to show appreciation to those who serve us through the night.  

     O God, send us your loving mercy.  

Your glory shines through the earth: open our eyes to the beauty and wonder of the natural world. 

     O God, send us your loving mercy. 

Our Father . . .  

May God show us mercy and grant us salvation, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
