Morning Intercessions

Morning Intercessions

God of the universe, your creativity shines through the diversity of humanity and creatures. In wonder we pray: Fill us with awe, O God.  

Inspire your Church to embody Pope John XXIII’s model of inclusivity, obedience, and peace.  

     Fill us with awe, O God.  

Help us to celebrate and honor native peoples by learning about their histories and cultures.  

     Fill us with awe, O God.  

Unite people of every race, nation, and tongue in care for the earth and concern for the poor.  

     Fill us with awe, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May God open our eyes and hearts to discover unity in diversity and to behold one another with awe and respect through Jesus, who makes us one. Amen.
