O Lord, we bring before You the distress and
dangers of peoples and nations, the pleas of
the imprisoned and the captive, the sorrows of
the grief-stricken, the needs of refugees, the
impotence of the weak, the hunger of the poor,
the cries of the unborn for justice, the weariness
of the despondent, the despair of the homeless,
and the weakness of the aging. O Lord, stay
close to all of them.

We pray in the name of your beloved son Jesus,

one God for ever and ever.

Amen.

For those in physical, emotional, or spiritual need, we offer our prayers, and where possible, we resolve to give practical assistance...while also asking You our God to alert and inspire those who are specifically able to help those suffering and in need.

Jesus, inspire us with gospel love for others. Knowing that each person is Your beloved, we ask that You reveal those who are in need amongst us.

Alert us to those who feel unable to request help or cannot believe in its availability. Alert us to those whose poverty or anxieties make life seem endless struggle.

Alert us to the lonely, unwanted and forgotten ones, anyone whose self-worth desperately needs affirmation.

Bring before us those who suffer disappointment, tragedy, or upheaval, and who need others’ support until they rethink their lives and attitudes.

Alert us to those who are scarred or crushed by sins or guilt, so that through us You may express Your forgiveness, love and acceptance of them, and encourage their reconciliation.

Search out to us those who are in danger of losing their faith if no one shows them Christian love and witness.

Reveal to us anyone whose ability to persevere hangs on another’s kindness, inspiration or friendship.

Alert those amongst us who would willingly serve if they become aware of another’s pain and need. Lead us to share our gifts with others with wisdom, cheerfulness, humility, gentleness and strength. In our dealings with others, let us bring living Christ.

Let those who are incapacitated or suffering offer their difficulties and joys to intercede for love and justice in our community and in our world. Let these blessed-deprived ones, along with all who are prayerful, unite their offering with the service of the prayerfully active, to bring Your kingdom of love amongst us.

Thank You for all healing and compassion that You activate in our hearts for others. We pray to act upon this compassion to assist each other in appropriate and valuable ways.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women and
