Prayer of the Day
O God, in the abundance of your grace you increase and multiply the number of those who believe in you: Mercifully look upon your chosen people, so that, having been reborn in the sacrament of Holy Baptism, they may be clothed in the garments of immortality; through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Pray for all those who need our prayer
For the neglected and those who have no one to pray for them
For an awareness of our mortality
For fellowship with the saints
For the mission of the Church
For quiet confidence in God’s care and for faith in his wondrous purpose

Our Father

The Lord almighty bless (+) us, and direct our days and our deeds in his peace.
