Redeeming God, you are without beginning or end. In hope we pray: Show us mercy, God.  

Give joy and understanding to those who are preparing to receive the sacraments.  

Show us mercy, God. 

Strengthen and rejuvenate those who are recovering from illness, surgery, or injury.  

Show us mercy, God.  

Restore peace and security for the people of Ukraine and war-torn parts of the world.  

Show us mercy, God.  

Our Father . . .  

May the mercy and truth of God attend us all our days, through Jesus, our redeemer for endless ages. Amen.
