Provident God, you are the breath of all the living. In hope we pray: Living God, hear our prayer.
Strengthen the solidarity of your Church with those who are persecuted for their faith.
Help us to fulfill the commitments we have made in accordance with your will.
Sing in the hearts of all who experience forgiveness, healing, or reconciliation.
Our Father . . .
May God give us strength of heart, firmness in faith, and steadfastness in love through Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
