Universal Prayer 08/10/2014

August 10, 2014

For the Church, that as we confront the worldliness around us, we may be strengthened by the power of the Holy Spirit,
let us pray to the Lord..

For our brothers and sisters who are being persecuted for their belief in Jesus Christ, especially those in Iraq, may we keep them close in our hearts and steadfast in our prayers
let us pray to the Lord..

For public officials, that all their decisions may promote the public good,
let us pray to the Lord..

For our faith community, that we may be generous in sharing our resources for the benefit of the poor and powerless,
let us pray to the Lord..

For those who live with uncertainty every day of their lives, especially all who are in body, mind or spirit, that the calming presence of God be revealed to them through the caring of others,
let us pray to the Lord..

For all those who have lost their lives working for just causes, may they be at peace in heaven,
let us pray to the Lord..

For the prayers we remember now in silence (pause 20 seconds), may they be united with the prayers of Saint Patrick, and all the saints in light
let us pray to the Lord…
