We are called by God’s love to live in the light of Christ. Let us pray that we and others might remember and live as we have been called.
For the Church: that we will grow in our awareness of the length, breadth, and depth of God’s love for us, we pray:
For a greater realization of God’s goodness: that we may recognize everything as a gift and open our hearts to the many gifts God wants to give us, we pray:
For all who serve the greater good whether in the military, in diplomacy, or in humanitarian relief: that God will guide and protect them and bring them home safely, we pray:
For all whose lives are darkened by addiction; that the light of the Gospel may open a new path before them, we pray:
For all who seek to grow in their faith, for those in RCIA, and all in religious education programs: that they may come to know Christ more each day and express their faith through deeds of light, we pray:
For the sick and suffering in our community, including: Florence Larsgaard. For all who suffer, we pray:
For those who have died and for grieving families, especially John Hoffman, the son of Joanne Hoffman; Robert Lager, the father of Mark Lager; Cecilia Asleson, the sister of Sam Ocel; Consor Holgado, the mother of Angelica Vang; Debbie Adams, the wife of Alan Adams. May they find comfort in God’s love, we pray:
Loving God, help us to live in Christ’s light. May we reflect his endless love and mercy toward all those who cross our paths. Amen.
