Mighty God, you are strength for all who come to you for help. In faith we pray: God, hear our prayer. 

Sustain the hope of those who wait for the birth of a child, the return of a loved one, healing, or reconciliation.  

God, hear our prayer. 

Lift the spirits of those who are discouraged or bowed down by human weakness.  

God, hear our prayer. 

Inspire those who operate schools, parishes, retreat centers, or libraries. 

God, hear our prayer.. 

Our Father . . . 

May God bless us and make us messengers of Christ’s love, tenderness, and mercy, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
