Morning Intercessions

Morning Intercessions

Tender God, you show great compassion upon those who seek you. In company with St. Teresa we pray: O God, teach us your ways.  

Send your Spirit of compassion and wisdom upon Pope Francis and all your Church.  

     O God, teach us your ways.  

Help us to listen with the ear of our hearts and to let go of all that keeps us from living in the peace of Christ. 

     O God, teach us your ways.  

Inspire religious communities and parishes in their efforts to live the Gospel.  

     O God, teach us your ways.  

Our Father . . .  

May the peace of Christ rule in our hearts and lead us to greater gratitude and love. Amen.
