The topic for October is for those in times of doubt
Most merciful God, we pray for those who doubt your love; for those who
find it difficult to believe or to pray; for those who have lost a faith they once
possessed. May the Holy Spirit enlighten their minds and lead them into all
truth, through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Frank Colquhoun)
