For the Church: that we who are called to be holy may allow the grace of God to work in us and form us into the people of God

For all disciples:  that we may be a light to the nations and an instrument of God’s saving message to all who are seeking deeper meaning and purpose for their life

For catechists and parents: that like John the Baptist, they may introduce and lead the young people in their care to a deeper relationship with Jesus

For the grace of humility: that we may use our gifts in the service of God and be open to the gifts of others so that through all of us, God’s work may be accomplished

For a greater awareness of God’s call in our lives: that we may listen and live out the mission to which God invites us

For all relief and aid workers: that God will renew their strength and energy as they serve those in need and that God will protect them from all harm

For all who have turned away from God: that our words and deeds may make God’s love and presence known to them

For an end to racism and the dawn of a new cooperation amongst all peoples:  that God will help us recognize the dignity of each person and give us courage to reach past divisions build a greater society

For all who are filled with worry or anxiety:  that God will ease their fear, help them to recognize the God is with them, and give them courage

For all who have suffered from natural disasters or the deeds of others: that God will give them strength, renew their hope, and touch the hearts of many to assist them

For greater respect of human life: that we may honor and respect all human life which God has formed in the womb and holds in being each day

For all Christians who face persecution: that God will stir up the Spirit within them, protect them from harm, and help them to bear true witness to the Gospel

For Donald Trump and Michael Pence: that God will guide them in their service to the nation and give them wisdom to promote the common good

For peace: that the justice and peace of God’s reign may find a home in the hearts of all the human family

For all who have died: that they may be gathered to the Lord and experience the fullness of light and salvation in Christ
