God of unity and peace, in Jesus you bestow on us the blessing of eternal life. With grateful hearts we pray: God, in your mercy, hear our prayer.  

Strengthen your Church to follow Pope Francis’s teaching to defend those who are vulnerable and to avoid judgment of others.  

God, in your mercy, hear our prayer. 

Deepen our understanding of humanity’s relationship with creation.  

God, in your mercy, hear our prayer. 

Safeguard runaways, missing persons, and those who are tempted to harm themselves or others.  

God, in your mercy, hear our prayer. 

Our Father . . .  

May the Lord grant us a peaceful night and restful sleep so we may rise refreshed and ready to praise God another day. Amen.
