Morning Intercessions

You are currently viewing Morning Intercessions

God of our joy, through Jesus you have revealed the mystery of your love for us. In company with St. John we pray: Fill our hearts with praise, O God. 

The Word was made flesh and lived among us: open our senses to your divine presence among us. 

     Fill our hearts with praise, O God. 

Your faithful love is better than life: shape our hearts by your holy Word during this Christmastide, and help us to love one another.  

     Fill our hearts with praise, O God. 

You make all things new: bring lasting peace to the Middle East and all war-torn places in our world.  

     Fill our hearts with praise, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May the wisdom that St. John proclaimed take root in our hearts and minds, through Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. Amen.
