We who are disciples of Christ in our time join in prayer for his Church, and for all people. Lord God of power; set us free to live.
In obedience to the Lord, who for our sake was obedient to the human condition and gave us the example of holy baptism, we offer our prayers. True and living God; we want to know you more.
Let us pray in the unity of all who worship Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace and the Lord of mercy. In God; all things work together for good.
