Morning Intercessions

Morning Intercessions

Loving God, your daughter Mary Magdalene was the first to proclaim the Risen Lord. We rejoice with her and pray: Let us find our joy in you, O God.  

Animate your Church to joyfully encourage, acclaim, and appreciate the spiritual and temporal gifts of women.  

     Let us find our joy in you, O God.  

Inspire us to support and encourage young people in their search for meaning and vocation.  

     Let us find our joy in you, O God. 

Strengthen your Church to reach out to those who feel alienated from the Body of Christ.  

     Let us find our joy in you, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May the joy of the Risen Christ radiate our hearts and fill us with love for God, our neighbor, and all creation. Amen.
