We pray for the desire to serve others rather than ourselves, to forego greed, and to be rich in God’s love.

We pray that we can be always grateful for the many blessings given us, reaching out to share these blessings with the poor and marginalized in our community.

We pray that all leaders may see God’s heavenly image in every human being, and work to provide more equal distribution of goods, throughout our country and the world, to alleviate hunger and poverty.

We pray for those suffering from extreme weather conditions across the country, especially those who have suffered loss from wildfires and storms.

We pray for all who suffer physical and mental illness. We pray for those who have died, that they find glory with our merciful God in heaven.
