June Prayer- The Persecuted
For those who are persecuted
O Most Blessed Mother, heart of heart, heart of mercy,
always listening, caring and loving, hear our prayer.
As your children, we ask you to remember us to our brother Jesus.
Listen to the prayers we place before you today.
We especially remember those who are persecuted
because of who they are, what they believe or where they live.
We know your heart is ever open to those who ask for your prayers,
We trust to your gentle care and generous heart,
those whom we love, those who are sick or lonely or hurting .
Help all of us, Holy Mother, to recognise injustice and to work
and pray for a fairer world.
“We walk in the footsteps of Jesus so that we may have life in all its fullness”
