Celebrant: Let us join our hearts and voices in prayer for all who journey with us to the kingdom of God:
For our Church and parish community, that every work and prayer of ours may proclaim the compassion and peace of God: let us pray to the Lord.
For all bishops, priests, and deacons, and for the members of religious orders and communities,
that their lifestyles of simplicity, charity, and peace may give joyful witness to the reign of God: let us pray to the Lord.
For the nations and peoples of the world, that God may bless them with peace and prosperity forever: let us pray to the Lord.
For college students and young adults, that the Spirit of God will open their hearts to take on the work of the harvest: let us pray to the Lord.
For those who suffer from illness, persecution, loss, or addiction, that they may find comfort in the healing love of God: let us pray to the Lord.
For all who have died in the peace of Christ, that they may rise with him to newness of life: let us pray to the Lord.
For the prayers we now make in the silence of our hearts:
Celebrant: Hear our prayers, O Lord, and be with us on our journey. May your peace guide our steps and your hope light our way as we journey through this life to the joy of your kingdom, where you live and reign for ever and ever.
