God of wonderful deeds, through the cross of Jesus you lead us to new life. We pray:  Strengthen our faith, O God. 

Help us to put on Christ and give of ourselves with the love you show to us.  

     Strengthen our faith, O God.  

Still the cries for vengeance, heal relationship wounds, and uphold us in troubled times.  

     Strengthen our faith, O God. 

Give gladness and joy to elderly people.  

     Strengthen our faith, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God give joy to our hearts and make us wise in fear of the Lord, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
