Morning Intercessions

Morning Intercessions

Mighty God, all in heaven and on earth are yours. In confidence we pray to you: O God, give us the joy of your salvation.  

Help us to live in gratitude for life and to extend love to those who are challenged by trials. 

     O God, give us the joy of your salvation. 

Inspire efforts to address opioid abuse, violence, and the spread of disease.  

     O God, give us the joy of your salvation. 

Comfort those who are afflicted with loss and grief.  

     O God, give us the joy of your salvation. 

Our Father . . . 

May God renew a steadfast spirit within us and lead us along the everlasting way, in Jesus, healer of our every ill. Amen.
