Eternal God, in Jesus you companion us along the way that leads to everlasting life. In faith we pray: Show us the path of life, O God. 

Strengthen your Church to model unity and nurture practices of faith, dedication, and service in young people.  

     Show us the path of life, O God.  

Open opportunities and venues of support for those who have been released from prison.  

     Show us the path of life, O God. 

Safeguard all who reside or work in nursing homes, and help us to ensure the best of care for our elders.  

     Show us the path of life, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God lead us along pathways of peace and guard us in love, through Jesus our redeemer. Amen.
