Almighty God, who through your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ have overcome death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life: grant that, as by your grace going before us you put into our minds good desires, so by your continual help we may bring them to good effect; through Jesus Christ our risen Lord.

PRAYERS

We pray that we may abide in Christ, and that his words may abide in us, so that we shall be united in him and trust in his strength alone.

Cleanse the Church from all that hinders her mission, purify her, that she may bring forth the good fruit of the gospel.

We pray for all who suffer in mind or body, in illness, poverty or despair. We pray especially for all places and people affected by the Pandemic.

We pray for those who have died; that they may find eternal peace, and for those who mourn them; that they may be comforted.
