Sisters and brothers, the Lord has done great things for us. With glad and thankful hearts, let us pray, “Fix our hearts where joy is found; Lord, hear our prayer.”


Do a new thing in your Church, O Lord. From our dry places spring forth new life. Refresh your bishops, priests, and deacons. Refresh all Christians in their vocations.

Fix our hearts where joy is found; Lord, hear our prayer.


Restore the dreams of those who have lost hope. Among the swift and varied changes of the world, be a strong foundation on which all can rely.


Fix our hearts where joy is found; Lord, hear our prayer.


Give water in dry places. Remove the suffering of those who live with drought. Bring water, quench thirst, and give growth in desperate lands.


Fix our hearts where joy is found; Lord, hear our prayer.


We pray, O God, for the poor. Be merciful to victims of theft. Restore the fortunes of those devastated by dishonest men and women. Never forget the lives of your poor.


Fix our hearts where joy is found;

Lord, hear our prayer.


Let those who sow with tears, reap with songs of joy. Fill down-turned mouths with shouts of joyful deliverance. Restore your people, O Lord. We especially pray for: For Ukrainians and The Ukraine, our  environment/nuestro ambiente, Evangelista, Maria Gonzalez, Jackie, Ted, Susan, Jon Paul, Michele and Nathan, Patrick, Isabel y familia, Soraida, Ana, Hadi, Theresa, Nancy, Diane, Florrie, Rosario Espinal, Eric, Melecia, Joyce and Alison, Elaine, Chila, Vitoriano, Xiomara, Kevin, Karley and their children, Nadia, Yvonne, Laurie, Sandy & Carl, Geoffrey, John, Ashley, Mary, Peter, Eleanor, Clarisa, Kelsey, Matt, David, Irene, Cosset Maria, Mara, Marangelis, Ennis, Albert, Linda, Aür, MaryBeth and Allison, Betty Ann, Corbin, Blanca, Gilberto, Emily, Lisa, Gretchen, Doña Ana, Maria Estela Rosa, Andy, Evelyn, Doña Consuelo, Don Félix, Bob, Bill and Geri, Elia y Glenn, Tony, Louise, Charlie, John, Susan, Maria, Courtney, Celia, Amy, Bill, Jacquelyn Maria and Johnnie Mae


Fix our hearts where joy is found; Lord, hear our prayer.


O God, we long to know Christ and the power of his resurrection. Even as we share in his suffering, even as we die, may we, and all who die, attain the resurrection of the dead.


Fix our hearts where joy is found; Lord, hear our prayer.
