The living God saves, sets free, and works signs and wonders in the heavens and on earth (cf Dn 6:28).
Through the intercession of all the saints who have sought refuge in God in time of trouble, let us pray:
R. Listen to our cry!
You delivered your people from slavery in Egypt:
– deliver all those in bondage to sin and oppression. (R.)
You delivered your people from exile in Babylon:
– deliver all those who endure or fear the loss of homes and livelihood. (R.)
You delivered the world from sin and death:
– deliver all those whose minds and hearts are wrapped in the darkness of fear and anxiety over the burdens they must bear. (R.)
Lord our God, our rock, our fortress, our deliverer, you brought life from death through the mystery of the cross. Deliver your people in time of suffering and need, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
