God of our praise, your love is kind. In hope we pray: 

Hear us, O God.  

Lead all nations and governments to end wars and the production of nuclear and chemical weapons. 

Hear us, O God.  

Rescue missing persons. 

Hear us, O God.  

Comfort those who are in pain. 

Hear us, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May God strengthen us to be steadfast in faith, unwavering in hope, and tender in love, through Jesus our brother. Amen.
