God, our Father,
We are brothers and sisters in Jesus your Son,
One family, in the Spirit of your love.
Bless us with the joy of love.
Make us patient and kind,
gentle and generous,
welcoming to those in need.
Help us to live your forgiveness and peace.
Protect all families with your loving care,
especially those for whom we now pray:
We also pray for all who are gathered here this evening.
Increase our faith,
Strengthen our hope,
Keep us safe in your love,
Make us always grateful, for the gift of life, that we share.
Our Lady of the Assumption, pray for us.
Saint Joseph, pray for us.
Saint Brigid, pray for us.
Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us.
