Evening Intercessions

Evening Intercessions

Wondrous God, by the cross of Christ Jesus, death no longer has power over creation. In hope we pray: God, in your wisdom, hear our prayer.

Restore order and peace to cities and towns ravaged by war, violence, or political unrest.

     God, in your wisdom, hear our prayer.

Bring justice to those who suffer racial discrimination, oppression, or denial of human rights.

     God, in your wisdom, hear our prayer.

Lead all the faithful departed to share in the victory you have won for us.

     God, in your wisdom, hear our prayer.

Our Father . . .

May God strengthen us in faith so that we may trust always in the power and love of God, through Jesus and in the Holy Spirit. Amen.
