For Katherine's health and for all who love her.
For Mark's recuperation and deep comfort for his soul.
For Jack facing surgery next month.
For the people of Iran.
For Klady's son who had surgery on his hand today that healing and recovery may be swift.
We remember today, O God, the slaughter of the holy innocents of Bethlehem by King Herod. Receive, we pray, into the arms of your mercy all innocent victims; and by your great might frustrate the designs of evil tyrants and establish your rule of justice, love, and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
[Yes, I know it's transferred to tomorrow but it's on my heart today.]
