Morning Intercessions

You are currently viewing Morning Intercessions

Shepherding God, you anointed Peter to be the rock upon which you would build your Church. We celebrate this commission and pray: O God, hear us. 

Strengthen Pope Francis, bishops, and all your Church for the pursuit of justice and peace. 

     O God, hear us. 

Nourish the faith and good zeal of local churches and faith-based communities.  

     O God, hear us. 

Help us to recognize, develop, and celebrate our spiritual gifts and the giftedness of one another.  

     O God, hear us. 

Our Father . . . 

May God draw near to us in time of trial, protect us from harm, and fulfill our hearts’ desires, through Jesus our brother. Amen.
