God of love and compassion, by your spirit the whole body of your faithful people is governed and sanctified. Receive our prayers, which we offer before you for all members of your holy Church, that in our vocation and ministry we may truly and reverently serve you well.

We sincrely pray for the poor, the sick, the hungry, the oppressed, prisoners, people who are displaced, the unemployed and those in need.

Our beloved Father, grant that the promised day may soon come when peace, love and compassion, shall again light all lamps that wars and conflicts have extinguished; when all wanderers and displaced can return to their homes; when all of us may be united in our quest of building a community of genuine love and just peace.

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, guide the nations of the world into the way of justice and truth, and establish among us that love and peace are fruits of righteousness.

We pray to you our heavenly Father for the people of Rohingya who were forced to flee their homes from the northern part of Rakhine state of Myanmar. Their lives are threatened and even death comes to many of them, even women, children and old ones are not spared. Their houses were burned and they experienced one of the worst humanitarian crises in our time.

Our loving God of peace and compassion, we pray that you answered the call of the Rohingyan's for their immediate relief and that they may received justice and their perpetrators are forgiven. We sincerely pray for genuine peace to reign in their heart.

We also pray for the Philippines who are in the midst of political and economic uncertainties.  May your love and blessings shines upon them, so we can free our hearts with hatred and greed that results to disunities and conflicts. And replaced it with genuine love, forgiveness and just peace.

We also pray for migrants and refugees who are forced to flee from their homeland because of war and conflicts, poverty and hunger, among others. In particular, we pray for the soul of 50 migrants who died after their boat run out of fuel and capsized off the Libyan coast.

Our loving God, we also pray for the pople of Mexico especially the victims of the recent earthquake. May those who lost their lives rest in peace, and those injured be healed and those who are grieving be comforted. We also pray for those affected by hurricane Maria in the Carribean and those affected by Hurricane Irma.
We also pray for Hong Kong, may the freedom of speech in and ourt of the academic institutions as well as its academic independence be protected and ensured. May the people of Hong Kong continue to practice their communication rights so they can freely express its belief and understanding.
We also pray for the soul of Lucy's father. May he find peace in the kingdom of God. We also pray for our sisters and brothers joining the boat ride today for their safety.
We also pray for the people and Churches of Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, and Peru.

O' God, you are worthy to receive honour and blessings and praise. For you reign in the glory of the power that is love, now and forever.
