Our Loving Lord, hear us as we pray for our Sisters and Nuns.
We pray that in their daily seeking, you come to them who serve you in patient hope.
As they make an offering of themselves, you come to them who have pledged to you their poverty.
In their carrying the burdens of our world within their hearts, come to them who have offered themselves through vows to persevere.
It is your face that they seek in us—in the child and in the dying, in those who are whole and those broken, in our silence and in the riot of torment—and their desire to wash us with your love.
Guard their hearts of joy and protect their tender souls, for this we pray in Jesus name. Amen.
