St. Mark by unknown author - The Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, CC BY 4.0

God of love, you revealed Jesus as the Messiah through the evangelist Mark. In company with all the saints we pray: God, in your wisdom, hear our prayer. 

Rekindle our joy for sharing the stories and love of Jesus. 

     God, in your wisdom, hear our prayer.  

Strengthen your Church to share in the sufferings of Christ and stand in solidarity with those who are oppressed or treated unjustly.  

     God, in your wisdom, hear our prayer. 

Prosper fruitful dialogue among women and men in your Church.  

     God, in your wisdom, hear our prayer. 

Our Father . . . 

May God bless us with listening hearts and a ready will to live the Gospel we profess, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
