A Prayer for Jubilee Sunday – 17th May 2015

Let us pray

We pray for the Church throughout the world, that we may be a sign of hope for the poor. God of hope: Hear our prayer.

We pray for world leaders, that they may act together for the cancellation of the debt of countries trapped in the debt-poverty cycle. God of generosity: Hear our prayer.

We pray for the people of countries affected by the heavy burden of international debt, that they may know a just and lasting solution to the problems they face. God of compassion: Hear our prayer.

We pray for ourselves, that through our choices, actions and words we may contribute to the alleviation of poverty in our world. God of love: Hear our prayer.
