Morning Intercessions

Morning Intercessions

God of the apostles, your friends tell of glory and your love. In company with Saints Philip and James we pray: Make us joyful in you, O God. 

Sing in the heart of your Church, and help us to inspire others to follow Jesus.  

     Make us joyful in you, O God.  

Nurture your gifts of faith, hope, and charity in all the baptized. 

     Make us joyful in you, O God. 

Lead us to find time for restorative leisure, silence, and rest from social media.  

     Make us joyful in you, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God enrich our lives with every grace and blessing we need to bring the good news of Christ’s saving love to the world. Amen.
