Heavenly Father,

We plead for the end of Russia’s war on Ukraine. We ask for Your Guidance on those working to eradicate disease. We implore Your Wisdom for our politicians. This UN World Humanitarian Day we recognize and pray for those who work compassionately for others especially those who have lost their lives. We honor the Blessed Virgin Mary on the Anniversary of her Assumption. We recall the Passion of St. John the Baptist. In honor of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Transfiguration of the Lord revealing His Divinity, we ask these.

Amen.
