Father, we pray for your holy Catholic Church;
That we all may be one.
Grant that every member of the Church
may truly and humbly serve you;
That your Name may be glorified by all people.
We pray for all bishops, priests, and deacons;
That they may be faithful ministers
of your word and sacraments.
We pray for all who govern and hold authority
in the nations of the world;
That there may be justice and peace on earth.
Give us grace to do your will
in all that we undertake;
That our works may find favor in your sight.
Have compassion on those who suffer
from any grief or trouble;
That they may be delivered from their distress.
Give to the departed eternal rest;
Let light perpetual shine upon them
We praise you for your saints
who have entered into joy;
May we also come to share in
your heavenly kingdom.
Let us pray for our own needs,
and the needs of others.
