For the Church: that we may grow in faith, hope and love, and help others to enjoy these gifts. Lord, hear us.
For all who have experienced rejection and persecution for being Christian, especially in the Middle East and parts of Africa:
that they may persevere in their faith and be witnesses to Christ in every situation. Lord, hear us.
For our country and the European Union: that fair and practical solutions may be found for the problems that face us. Lord, hear us.
We pray for peace everywhere, for those who live in lands affected by war, and for refugees Lord, hear us.
We pray for the sick: for those who care for them, including Andrew McLean, Heather Franke, Margaret Browne, Mary Bradley, Patricia Loose, John Dunne, Frank Kierney, Anne Judge, Moira Montgomery, Margaret Bowen, Joan Burns, Yvonne Watt, Anne Troy, and Catherine Gilbert. We pray for those whose lives are at risk as they serve the country in the armed forces.
Lord, hear us
