GENERAL INTERCESSIONS

 

 

 

5th Sunday of Easter – Year A

 

 

 

14th May 2017

 

 

 

PRIEST:  Our readings today remind us that we are a “Chosen Race and a people set apart” by God.  We know, therefore, we can now present our prayers with confidence in God’s Love  ….

 

 

 

READER: 

 

We pray for the children who today are receiving and preparing to receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist for the first time: may it be for them and their families a time of grace and love.

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

Jesus calls himself and Way and the Truth and the Life.  We pray that the values of Christ will be seen throughout our needy world.  We pray that world leaders will find in Christian values a path of Light for all who live in darkness.

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

In the First Reading from the Acts of the Apostles, we read that the early Christian Community had to balance their material needs with preaching the Word of God.  We pray that our Church will always dedicate itself to the preaching of the Word and at the same time work so that the basic human rights and dignity of each person will be valued.

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

Our Gospel today reminds us that Jesus loves us deeply and wants us to be led into the presence of God the Father who creates and loves us.  May we be inspired by today’s Mass to grow in our love of God through prayer and reflection in our daily lives.

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

We pray for all pupils and students preparing for and sitting exams at this time.  May they work hard so that their dreams might become a reality.

 

LORD, HEAR US ….

 

 

 

We pray for all those who have died, especially JIM CAVANAGH and our own relatives and friends, that they may receive the rewards of their labours in Heaven … (Pause) … and we spend a moment praying for our own needs … (further Pause) …

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

PRIEST:  God our Father, hear these prayers, grant what we need and show us the path to dignity and hope.  We ask this through Christ our Lord
