Dear God,

Your deeds of love are celebrated until the ends of the earth. We thank You today for the Christians of Asia who are taking Your Good News to heart and proclaim it to their countrymen and women. We pray especially for the Christians in Myanmar and Laos who are suffering persecution and violence, and we ask You to encourage them in their faith.

Through Christ our Lord.

Lord our God,

Heaven and earth proclaim Your goodness. We pray You this Tuesday for our sisters and brothers in Myanmar and Laos. Grant them justice, freedom and peace. Grant safety and good health to all the people in those countries—especially the children. Grant them hope and confidence in the future.

We ask You this through the intercession of St. Mary Magdalene, through Christ our Lord.

Almighty God,

Your Son asked that we pray You for laborers for the harvest, because the harvest is large. Therefore, we pray for vocations to the priesthood and the diaconate in Myanmar and Laos. Grant Your faithful in these countries capable, inspired and strong men to accompany the people on their life’s journey. Grant all preachers a fiery faith in the Good News of Your Son.

We ask this through the intercession of St. Brigid, through Christ our Lord.

Lord our God,

Your Son Jesus Christ promised us that He will draw all people to Himself. We ask You today to bless all families in Myanmar and Laos. Grant parents patience, wisdom and may they be loving in raising their children. Grant children loving care and opportunities to develop themselves. Grant the elderly good healthcare and a fruitful old age.

Through Christ our Lord.

God of love,

You sent Your Son to save the world. We thank You for inspired men and women in Myanmar and Laos who are proclaiming the Good News to their fellow citizens. We pray You: protect these faithful preachers and grant them wisdom, strength and prudence in their vital work. May their courage bear much fruit for all the world.

We ask this through the intercession of St. Jacob, through Christ our Lord.

God of the living,

You fed Your people with manna in the desert. We ask for Your gifts for all the people in Myanmar and Laos who are longing for justice and freedom. We ask Your blessing especially for the Christians in those countries: grant that they may stay strong and patient in difficult times.

Through Christ our Lord.

Merciful God,

You revealed Yourself in Your Son Jesus Christ as a good and loving God. On this first day of the week we want to thank You for the gift of our lives. We pray today especially that the rulers of this earth may acknowledge the greatness and might of Your love and that they pursue the peace of Christ, Your Son.

Through Christ our Lord.
