Prayer for Ordinary Time

Attend to the pleas of your people with heavenly care,

O Lord, we pray,

that they may see what must be done

and gain strength to do what they have seen.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
