For the Church: that we may grow in our trust in God and act confidently for others. We pray to the Lord
For Jerome Obinna who will be baptized today: that he may be blessed in his life by Gods Grace and love. We pray to the Lord
For the pope, bishops, priests and deacons: That they may continue to preach the Gospel with courage and zeal, as Saint Martin did in his times. We pray to the Lord.
For our leaders and all who exercise authority: may they act with integrity and use their power in the service of those in need
For refugees, outcasts, and the forgotten of society: may our hearts be open to their struggles and our communities motivated to work to support them
For all recovering from storms and floods: ease their suffering, give them courage and strength and help them restore their lives and homes
For all who have died, that they may share in the abundance of your eternal love
