Special Daily Intention

Prayer for the April Intention

Jesus, our Saviour,

your walking among us

brought liberation to many:

from disease, from unclean spirits,

from paralysis and blindness.

Today, many of our brothers and sisters

are prisoners of so many forms of dependence.

We ask you to place on their way

attentive people who can help them.

May your Holy Spirit give them light

to recognize their situation,

strength and courage to win this fight,

and the joy of helping those who are

going through these difficulties.

Our Father…
