Gracious God, your light shines through the suffering and faith of the martyrs. In company with St. Andrew Kim Tae-gŏn and his companions we pray: Bless us, O God.

Give freedom of religious expression to the people of South and North Korea and all of Asia.

     Bless us, O God.

Strengthen and sustain missionaries and all who are persecuted for their faith.

     Bless us, O God.

Help us to reach out to those who hunger and thirst for justice and for temporal needs.

     Bless us, O God.

Our Father . . .

May God give us joy for the days of our affliction and animate us for the works of justice and mercy, through Jesus our brother. Amen.
