Prayer of the Day
Watch, dear Lord, with those who work or watch or weep, and give your angels charge over those who sleep. Tend the sick, give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous. In your love give us all this, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
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
The Lord almighty bless (+) us, and direct our days and our deeds in his peace.
