God of the prophets, you sent John the Baptist to herald the arrival of Jesus. In company with him we pray: Creator God, hear our prayer. 

Strengthen our covenant relationship of love with one another.  

Creator God, hear our prayer. 

Safeguard those who suffer persecution for their faith.  

Creator God, hear our prayer. 

Secure the rights of prisoners and help us to stop all forms of torture.  

Creator God, hear our prayer. 

Our Father . . . 

May God bless us with constancy in faith, fidelity in hope, and trust in love, through Jesus, the Messiah. Amen.
