Morning Intercessions

Morning Intercessions

All-powerful God, you change our mourning into dancing. In hope we pray: Show us mercy, God.

You heal us: strengthen those who are in recovery from addiction.

     Show us mercy, God.

You restore us to life: support those who have recently been released from prison.

     Show us mercy, God.

You gird us with joy: rejoin families separated by war, disaster, or political conflicts.

     Show us mercy, God.

Our Father . . .

May God comfort our hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word, through Jesus our brother. Amen.
