Merciful God, you are the hope of all the earth. In faith we pray: 

God, our savior, hear our prayer.  

Help your Church to take concrete actions to redress clergy abuse. 

God, our savior, hear our prayer.  

Increase cooperation and collaboration for the common good among citizens and government officials.  

God, our savior, hear our prayer. 

Restore joy and gladness to those who suffer sorrow and sadness. 

God, our savior, hear our prayer.  

Our Father . . .  

May God bless us with counsel and wisdom in our time of need, through Jesus our peace. Amen.
