Evening Intercessions

God of surprises, you lift up the lowly and keep an eye on the proud. In hope we pray to you: Fill us with your Spirit, O God.  

Widen our circle of inclusion to those who are lonely, searching, or troubled.  

Fill us with your Spirit, O God.  

Help us to forge a caring and just society.  

Fill us with your Spirit, O God.  

Transform those who are tempted to harm others or destroy property. 

Fill us with your Spirit, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May God strengthen us with every gift of the Spirit, that we might live the Gospel and spread the Good News of God’s everlasting love. Amen.
