God of everlasting life, your Son rejoiced in the friendship of Martha, Mary, and Lazarus. With gratitude for the love that friendship bears, we pray: Bring us together in you, O God. 

Make your Church a place of welcome and hope for all people. 

     Bring us together in you, O God. 

Inspire us to show appreciation and love to our families, friends, and neighbors.  

     Bring us together in you, O God. 

Widen our circle of inclusion, and help us to protect the dignity of life at every stage. 

     Bring us together in you, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God grace us with friendship in Christ through one another, by the power of the Holy Spirit working in us. Amen.
