God of the cosmos, your Spirit is upon all who call upon you. In hope we pray: Merciful God, hear our prayer. 

For leaders in religious communities, parishes, and dioceses, we pray:  

Merciful God, hear our prayer. 

For ministers of charity and all who need food, shelter, or material supplies, we pray: 

Merciful God, hear our prayer. 

For first responders and those who work on the front line of health disasters, we pray:  

Merciful God, hear our prayer. 

Our Father . . . 

May God increase our faith, hope, and love by the power of the living Word, Jesus our brother. Amen
