Lord, Hear Our Prayers

For peace in the world. That all men and women may live as brothers and sisters in social peace and religious unity. To enlighten and guide all the leaders of our world, nation and community. For the pope, bishops, priests, religious and for all the Catholics of the world. For our family and near and dear ones. For our spiritual and temporal wants. For good health and long life. That we may go to heaven when we die. For success in work and studies. For a happy married life for my daughter, a safe pregnancy and normal delivery. For the eternal repose of the souls of our dear departed. Thanksgiving for favors received.

Heavenly Father, thank you so very much for the many, many blessings we received this year. It is overwhelming when I stop and think of all the ways you took care of our needs and provided a way through each and every challenge that came our way. Thank you so very much for all the people -- family, friends, parishioners, even strangers -- who loved us through a very stressful time. Thank you for revealing to us your love through these people. Thank you for showing us how great is your love. Thank you for showing us just how big people's hearts can be and how incredibly kind and generous people can be. There is much evidence in our world today of how people can treat each other badly, but I am here to say thank you so very much for showing us just how amazing people can be. We are capable of so much kindness. When you work through us and reveal yourself in us -- it is truly miraculous. This kind of display of love is proof of your existence and love for all people. For anyone who doubts the existence of God, please turn off the television and put down your computer and walk away from social media and go out into your community and experience of kindness of strangers, or be the stranger who is kind to others, and look at all the beauty in creation and you will see where God is. He is real. And he loves us -- more than we can possibly imagine.
