God of the cosmos, creation waits with eager expectation for the reign of your glory. In hope we pray: 

Stay with us, O God.  

Break through the darkness that surrounds those who experience war, disaster, or destitution. 

Stay with us, O God.  

Help us to end all violence and racism. 

Stay with us, O God.  

Bring the faithful departed to be one with Jesus in the eternal life of heaven. 

Stay with us, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May God satisfy our longing for the peace of the risen Christ and fill our hearts with Easter joy. Amen.
