Prayer for the beatification of Cyprien and Daphrose Rugamba and their children who died with them.
Holy Father, we pray to you for the beatification of the servants of God Cyprien and Daphrose Rugamba and the children who died with them. Through their intercession, may we always have, like them, a heart burning with love for you, an unceasing zeal for adoration, an active compassion for all those who suffer. Help us to give ourselves unstintingly to the service of the evangelisation of families and the poor. In communion with Cyprien and Daphrose Rugamba, we entrust to you especially couples who are experiencing marital difficulties and people who find it difficult to forgive their enemies, and we ask you to make us instruments of your peace. In communion with the children who died with them, we pray for all the little ones, especially children, who are victims of abuse and violence. Through the intercession of the servants of God, we dare to ask you, according to your will, for the grace of… (a prayer is expressed) Lord, grant us the peace and grace that we ask of you in faith. Amen.
