That God will heal our wounds of body, mind, and spirit, and enable us to become instruments of healing and hope for others who are wounded today, we pray:

That as parishioners of Risen Savior, we may see ways to share our time, energy, and resources to relieve the suffering and burdens of others, we pray:

That all who mourn the death of a loved one find comfort in the joy of Jesus’ resurrection, we pray:
