God of truth, in you the night is as clear as day. In faith we pray: Renew our hope, O God. 

Uphold peaceful protests, and inspire work to advance truth and reconciliation around race. 

     Renew our hope, O God. 

Shed your light upon efforts to safeguard and value the dignity of life from conception to death. 

     Renew our hope, O God. 

Advance creative dialogue among people of different cultures, and stir our spirit of appreciation and wonder for the diversity of gifts among us.  

     Renew our hope, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God strengthen us to follow faithfully the example of Mary, who treasured and pondered the Word of God in her heart. Amen.
