God of salvation, you are our glory. In hope we pray: 

Hear us, O God.  

Gladden the hearts of those who follow you in the religious or monastic life. 

Hear us, O God.  

Answer the pleas of parents who struggle to care for their children. 

Hear us, O God.  

Save those who suffer oppression, torture, or cruel treatment. 

Hear us, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May God show us mercy, forgive us our sin, and lead us to life everlasting. Amen.
