Evening Intercessions

Evening Intercessions

Most High God, you hear our cries and rescue us from distress. In confidence we pray: Lead us out of darkness, O God.

Help us to put aside differences and work together for the common good and the welfare of the poor.

     Lead us out of darkness, O God.

Relieve those who continue to suffer the effects of COVID-19.

     Lead us out of darkness, O God.

Shelter the homeless, secure their safety, and grant them restful sleep.

     Lead us out of darkness, O God.

Our Father . . .

May the word of Christ dwell richly in our hearts and bear fruit in wisdom and understanding of God’s love, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
