Saving God, you are our refuge and our strength. We place our trust in you and pray: God of peace, hear our prayer. 

Help us to end all wars and stop the production of nuclear and chemical weapons.  

     God of peace, hear our prayer. 

Inspire and prosper efforts to guard the dignity of the unborn and to support women in crisis pregnancies. 

     God of peace, hear our prayer. 

Widen our circle of inclusion, and help us to show hospitality to immigrants, newcomers, and those who are lonely.  

     God of peace, hear our prayer. 

Our Father . . . 

May God strengthen us with every gift of the Spirit so that we may live the Gospel with joy. Amen.
