September 15 ~ 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time

For the church:  inspire and strengthen Pope Francis and your Cardinals and Bishops as they guide us in living out your kingdom.  God of mercy, we pray.

For our world: that we may go beyond defense of boundaries and come together to defend our earth.  God of mercy, we pray.

For those who have squandered love and treasure: give them trust in your love and your welcome home.  God of mercy, we pray.

Help us here at St. Anne's to be a community of welcome where, in your name, all are included, valued and loved.  God of mercy, we pray.

For the grace to accept that, regardless of our own failings, you mercifully love us.  May we go and do likewise.  God of mercy, we pray.

For all those who are sick including Joan Johnson, Margaret Rican (Rick-end), Frank Siderius, Alan Rosenthal, Beverly Peterson, and Naomi Zamberlin.  We pray also for those who have died including Katherine Gehrts and Bob Maxwell, God of mercy, we pray.

In thankfulness for all that is written in our Parish Book of Thanksgiving.  We pray also for the intentions written in the Parish Book of Intercessions and those we hold in the silence of our hearts.  God of mercy, we pray.
