On others’ behalf
Dear God, I pray concurrently for each person You place in my life, for each member of my family—earthly and spiritual—as if each were the only one. I commit them totally to You so that Your love becomes the source of all their thoughts and actions.
For all who cannot at this time in their lives pray or believe, I ask You to accept my prayers, my sacramental participation, and my acts of kindness to be theirs also. In Your infinite love, draw them speedily to Yourself in joy and peace!
Thank You merciful God who wish all souls to live in You. Thank You for the blessings You have given to our loved ones.
Conversion of souls
God, I share a spark of Your desire for the lasting happiness and peace of other people. However, You alone breathe life into our prayer and service. You alone make our concern fruitful and our efforts full of faith, hope, and blessing. Therefore, I trust You, our God, to be the petition and the fulfilment of what otherwise remains as futile toil, meaningless words, and lifeless hope. I trust to Your grace in my efforts and prayers. Let Your kingdom come.
