The apostles look to destroy the Samaritans who did not welcome Jesus/ because he was on his way to the wrong holy city./ We ask to be healed of resentments and the desire to punish people in revenge./ We pray to the Lord.
We pray for the children who were born this week,/ and for adults eager to welcome them into a just and peaceful world./ We pray to the Lord.
Terrible fires are already burning in California at the start of summer./ We pray for fire-fighters and all who are helping./ For the safety of all/ and for rain where it is needed./ We pray to the Lord.
Heal the gun violence of this nation/ which takes the lives of eighty nine people each day./ Give us peaceful minds./ We pray to the Lord.
In the June-month of the Sacred Heart,/ we ask for all to the know the un-tiring love of Christ,/ keeping world leaders in mind,/ and the sick,/ the elderly,/ the poor/ and those who are marginalized and powerless./ We pray to the Lord.
For summer travelers and vacationers./ For those who get no time away from tiresome work./ For families struggling with addiction,/ bitterness and dysfunction./ We pray to the Lord.
We pray for anyone who is dying,/ mindful of those who are alone or without help./ And for the dead/ we ask forgiveness and the blessings of life and joy./ We pray to the Lord.
