God of wondrous deeds, you love us and claim us forever. Grateful for your care we praise you and pray: God, come to our aid. 

Make fruitful our efforts to protect the dignity of life at all stages and in every circumstance. 

     God, come to our aid. 

Strengthen the faith and courage of candidates for baptism, confirmation, and ordination. 

     God, come to our aid. 

Help us to care for the natural world and share its beauty with one another.  

     God, come to our aid. 

Our Father . . . 

May God strengthen us in patience, love, and faith as we await the blessed hope of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
