- That God will cleanse the temple of our hearts, free us from all that enslaves us, and help us to offer our self-sacrificing service to God and others, we pray:
- That those who are ill and are suffering may find hope and healing, especially, Larry McLaughlin, Madelon Byrne, Erin Reid, Treven Smith, Doug Bortscheller, Lee Brezinka, we pray:
