Morning Intercessions

Morning Intercessions

Nurturing God, you sustain your Church by your sacraments. In company with St. Athanasius we pray: O God, lead us along the everlasting way. 

Nourish your gifts of compassion, wisdom, humility, and prayer in Pope Francis, bishops, pastors, and catechists.  

     O God, lead us along the everlasting way.  

Restore and sustain hope in those who are distressed, grieving, or discouraged. 

     O God, lead us along the everlasting way. 

Inspire the insights, research, and instruction of teachers, theologians, and scientists.  

     O God, lead us along the everlasting way. 

Our Father . . . 

May the peace of Christ reign in our hearts, now and always. Amen.
