God of light, you embrace all of life in your tender mercy. Mindful of the compassion shown to us in the sacred heart of Jesus, we join our hearts with St. Gertrude and pray to you: Merciful God, hear us.  

Deepen the gifts of contemplation, prayer, and charity in your Church.  

Merciful God, hear us. 

Advance efforts among elected officials toward collaboration for the common good. 

Merciful God, hear us. 

Prosper work to ensure equitable availability and use of technology. 

Merciful God, hear us. 

Our Father . . .  

May God grant us perseverance in times of trial or desolation, through Jesus, our redeemer and peace. Amen.
