God is perfect harmony at the heart of creation …. We pray for greater respect and reverence for creation, that we will learn how to harvest the world’s resources without polluting and destroying God’s beautiful creation; we pray too for miracles of peace in our war-torn world, especially among the peoples of the Middle East, Sudan and Central Africa

                                         [reader:]                 GOD OF LOVE

God is the community of equality that empowers the poor …. we pray for all people who are denied the basic necessities of life and for all refugees and those seeking safe asylum, in particular those who have fled because of their LGBT+ identity: may we safeguard their dignity, made in God’s Image and Likeness; for all political and Church leaders that they will work with honesty, integrity and commitment for justice and equality of opportunity for all.

God is diversity in loving unity … we pray for all who have been wounded by the Church’s rejection of their identity and sexuality: may a new acceptance bring healing to the wounded as each person is empowered to offer the gift they are and the gifts they have to enrich the life and mission of God’s People

                                         [reader:]                 GOD OF LOVE

God is Unity …. we pray for deeper bonds of friendship and unity between the Churches, in the service of the mission of the Gospel; may we also build together a greater ‘Fellowship of Believers’ as people of different world faiths seeking to build a democratic society of harmony

God is a love that heals and protects … for the people of the Congo and Uganda, afflicted by the Ebola epidemic, for all medical staff working in those areas, especially those threatened by civil conflict in the Congo

God listens to our prayer, and knows our every need …. we pray all who are sick and housebound, for all who carry the wounds of rejection of who they are, and especially ….
For all who died recently, especially ….  and those killed in war, conflict and terror, especially in the Sudan, and the refugees who have perished in the waters of the Mediterranean: that they might see God face to face
and for all  whose anniversaries occurs at this time ….

                                         [reader:]                 GOD OF LOVE

Mary, beloved of the Father, dwelling place of the Word made Flesh, overshadowed by the Spirit, pray with us for harmony among all peoples…

HAIL MARY ….

Let us pray, contemplating the God of Love in a moment of silence….
