We pray to the Lord, that He will support us in the dark days and the sunny days.
The days filled with laughter and light, and those of sorrow and fear.
We pray that good will triumph over evil, truth over lies, love over hate, and compassion over hardness of heart.
We pray that we will act, not out of fear, but only out of love, because we are called to a vocation of love.
Loving God, accompany us on our journey.
You have called us each by name.
Sustain us on our pilgrim way.
Inspire us to be the best people we can be.
Open our eyes to see Your face in the face of those we meet along the way.
Open our ears to hear Your voice. Become one with us.
Be our friend and our teacher, as we do our best, knowing You will do the rest.
May You find praise in all we say and do each day.
Give us courage Lord, to sing a new song for You.
A song of justice and peace, a song of love and compassion.
Sing to the Lord, hearts filled with joy, for all that we need, we will find in Him.
All powerful God, pour upon us the bounty of your love that we may protect life and beauty.
Fill us with peace, that we may live as brothers and sisters, sharing our common humanity.
O God of the poor, touch the hearts of those who seek only to gain, at the expense of the poor and the earth.
Help us to encounter You in those we meet, especially the displaced, the poor and those in need.
