Forgiving God, all creation praises you for your plentiful redemption in Christ Jesus. In faith we pray: God, in your mercy, hear our prayer. 

Inspire the baptized to build communion in the Church and extend Christ’s love to all people.  

     God, in your mercy, hear our prayer. 

Free those who suffer because of oppression or political unrest, and keep citizens safe.  

     God, in your mercy, hear our prayer. 

Attend to the pleading of parents whose children are missing, troubled, or gravely ill.

Our Father . . . 

May God, who has redeemed us through Christ, strengthen us to give thanks always and everywhere and to live in love, through Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
