Pope Francis’ Prayer Intention
for the Month of April 2021
Universal Intention – Fundamental rights
We pray for those who risk their lives while fighting for fundamental rights under dictatorships, authoritarian regimes and even in democracies in crisis.
Lord Jesus Christ who are close to the suffering,
we bring before you the desire that all people are treated with dignity, respecting their right to their development as worthy sons and daughters of God the Father.
Infuse us with your Spirit the strength and courage to defend the Earth, proper housing and the work of all.
Take special care of those who risk their lives for this;
shake our sleeping consciences,
and give us your grace to feel the pain of the other as our own,
and transform reality into a promise of life.
