Merciful God of our ancestors, with a word you created all things. In hope we pray:

Lead us by your light, O God.

Guide your Church’s commission to spread the Good News and offer hospitality to all.

Lead us by your light, O God.

Comfort those who suffer rejection, betrayal, or neglect.

Lead us by your light, O God.

Increase our awareness of human trafficking, and further efforts to end all forms of slavery.

Lead us by your light, O God.

Our Father . . .

May God strengthen us in our trials and fill us with the peace of Christ. Amen.
