Lord,/ let your often bitterly divided Church/ model for the world the possibilities for unity and peace./ We pray to the Lord.
The world is flooded with refugees,/ immigrants,/ displaced persons and exiles./ Grant that before these persons are sent away/ we would hear their need and feel their feelings./ We pray to the Lord.
In the liturgical season of green/ we pray for the world's traumatized children who are denied their childhood./ And we pray for those who work to better the lives of children where they suffer./ We pray to the Lord.
Give light to darkened hearts./ Confirm the fickle hearts in the truth of your mercy and love./ We pray to the Lord.
We pray for the people and lands of Macedonia,/ Madagascar,/ Malawi,/ Mali,/ Malta,/ the Marshall Islands and Martinique./ We pray to the Lord.
Give us a deep reverence for our paradise-planet as it is your good creation:/ the water,/ the air,/ the soil,/ the animals and plants./ We pray to the Lord.
By your kind mercy/ receive those who have died this week/ mindful of those who died untimely deaths by neglect,/ war,/ murder,/ addiction,/ disaster or accident./ And for the people who live in mourning./ We pray to the Lord.
