Morning Intercessions

Morning Intercessions

Beneficent God, you give us every good gift. In faith we pray: O God, come to our aid. 

Give pastors, bishops, and Church ministers the grace to live, laugh, and cry with the people they serve.  

     O God, come to our aid.  

Rescue those who undergo torture, and help us to end all practices that inflict pain or suffering on others. 

     O God, come to our aid. 

Revive the hearts of those who experience exhaustion, depression, or great disappointment.  

     O God, come to our aid. 

Our Father . . . 

May God help us in times of trial and lead us along the everlasting way, through Jesus our Savior. Amen.
