Morning Intercessions

You are currently viewing Morning Intercessions

Beneficent God, you bless us with an abundance of grace through Jesus your Son. In faith we pray: God of salvation, hear our prayer.  

You rescue the needy when they cry: reunite families who are separated by war, political unrest, or disaster. 

God of salvation, hear our prayer. 

You defend those who have no one to help: uphold emergency aid efforts to those who have need of supplies, medical assistance, and shelter.  

God of salvation, hear our prayer. 

You crush the oppressor: help us to end terrorism, genocide, and war. 

God of salvation, hear our prayer. 

Our Father . . .  

May God strengthen us by the power of the Holy Spirit to believe in the name of Jesus and to love one another as Jesus commanded. Amen.
