Ever-living God, your love endures forever. In faith we pray: Show us your compassion, O God. 

Give justice to those who are unjustly imprisoned or accused.  

Show us your compassion, O God. 

Prosper efforts to protect the dignity of the unborn and of women.  

Show us your compassion, O God. 

Give peace to the dying and comfort to those who grieve.  

Show us your compassion, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God lead us to know the love of Christ that surpasses all knowledge so we may be filled with all the fullness of God. Amen.
