Everyday, O God who hears and responds to our petitions, we name those who we love who are struggling, sick or in need in hopes that their pain and suffering might be comforted. There are so many who need our prayer and to feel your presence. May we be that presence when we are called upon and may others all around the world respond when you call us to be your action in this broken world. May we by our faith, love and hope change what seems to be a world who is truly struggling to respond to the hate that is pervading our present reality. Let us through our love of you and one another make a difference. Amen.
