Generous God, you give us different spiritual gifts for the good of the Church. In trust we pray: God of peace, hear our prayer.  

Enlighten those who teach, preach, or administer the sacraments.  

     God of peace, hear our prayer.  

Uphold those who minister to the sick or comfort the grieving.  

     God of peace, hear our prayer.  

Grant listening hearts to those who counsel or companion others.  

     God of peace, hear our prayer.  

Our Father . . .  

May God bless us with firmness of faith, constancy in hope, and fidelity in love, through Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Amen.
