Pope Francis travels to Egypt this coming weekend./ We pray for his safety/ and ask that his visit would bring about new peace efforts,/ understanding and reconciliation./ We pray to the Lord.

All the world longs for good government./ We pray for leaders who are not corrupted,/ but moral people,/ intelligent,/ humble of heart,/ compassionate/ and generous servants./ We pray to the Lord.
In the Easter time/ grant that we would not lose our joy./ Protect us from anxiety/ and the angry cynicism which steals our energies/ and keeps us from the heart-awareness that leads to service./ We pray to the Lord.
We pray for prisoners,/ the sick and the dying,/ those with special needs,/ their families and any who help./ For the people who are victimized,/ abused,/ cheated,/ or left without support and friendship./ We pray to the Lord.
