January 20 - January 25

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Dear God,
You comfort children who are sad; you give aplenty to those who are hungry. We want to pray today especially for all the young refugees in Eritrea; for children burdened by uncertainty and difficult trials. Grant them relief in their daily suffering; grant them hope for a better future, joyful days with their peers, and allow these youngsters to grow up as healthy and happy people.
Through Christ our Lord.

God our Creator,
The goodness of Your creation can be seen across the world—Your good deeds are proclaimed everywhere. This Wednesday we want to ask You to bless all the people of Eritrea—especially all the Christians in that country. May their faith in Your Son bear much fruit and may they be living signs of His love.  We ask  You this through the intercession of St. Agnes, virgin and martyr,
Through Christ our Lord.

Living God,
Your Word creates all that is good. We thank You for the courageous people of Eritrea who are proclaiming Your Good News of peace and justice to the poor and those denied justice. We ask You today; protect these fervent Christians in their work of proclamation. Grant them wisdom, strength and prudence, so that their work may bear fruit for everyone in their environment.
Through Christ our Lord.

God of love, mercy and justice,
The seeds of Your Kingdom germinate and grow where You want. We pray for all the preachers of the Good News in Africa, especially in Eritrea. We ask You to grant them courage to perform their dangerous task. Grant them wise words to come from their lips and a fierce love for You and all people.
We ask you this through Christ our Lord.

God of love,
On this first day of the week You raised Your Son Jesus Christ from the dead, granting Him the power break the chains of death. On this Sunday we want to thank You for Your gift of our faith in Him, Your Son, and for the freedom we enjoy to practice this faith. We pray for all those who hunger for freedom and peace. Grant that all rulers in our world recognize Your supreme power.
Through Christ our Lord.
