God of peace, you are present to us in our pain and weakness. In hope we pray: Draw near to us, O God.  

Help us to know that you delight in us, and lead us to delight in one another. 

Draw near to us, O God.  

Heal those who suffer from low self-esteem or abuse of any kind. 

Draw near to us, O God.  

Inspire effective education and resources for young people to deal with bullying, exploitative advertising, and addiction to social media. 

Draw near to us, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May the peace of Christ reign in our hearts, now and always. Amen
