Quiet our hearts, still our minds, let us become more aware of the Divine, present with us now. We lift these special prayer requests to You, our God, our Creator. We admit that we donâ€™t fully understand how You are at work in our lives, help us trust that in all things You work for our good. Bring us a clearer understanding of what that means, and strengthen our resolve to follow wherever we are being called.

We pray especially for those struggling to overcome addiction. Let your presence in their lives be perceptible and fill the empty longing places. Lift up your children who are trapped in poverty, help us to know, as individuals and communities how to care for all of your children. Bless us all with a greater understanding of Your perfect will for our lives and for the world.

It is in the promises of Jesus Christ that we find the courage to pray these things. Amen.
