28TH MAY 2017

 

 

 

 

 

Priest:         We are invited this week to think that Jesus’ work in the world continues with the coming of the Holy Spirit.  Let us pray that the presence of God will be seen in the Church, in society and through our own lives…

 

 

 

Reader:      

 

1.     We pray for the repose of the souls of those who died in the Manchester Arena tragedy and for those mourning their loss.  We pray also for the people who are still in hospital with severe injuries – may they have a speedy recovery.

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

2.     We pray for ourselves: may we see ourselves as playing our part in the ongoing HOUR OF GOD in the world.  Through the power of the Holy Spirit may we find hope in our hearts and share God’s gifts more and more with those around us. 

 

          LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

3.     In this week of the Manchester Arena attacks, we pray for an end to violence and war: may our world leaders seek urgently for long-lasting peace.

 

          LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

4.     For the boys and girls in our Parish Community who are receiving in these weeks the

 

Sacrament of the Eucharist: may it be for them and for their families a time of renewal in God’s life.   

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

5.     We pray for those young people who are sitting exams at this time: may they cling to their dreams for a better world and work to fulfil them.

 

          LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

6.     We pray for Seamus Heraghty and James Gollogly who died this week and for all our deceased relatives and friends: may they receive the reward of their goodness … (Pause) and we remember our own special needs before the love of God  … (Pause) …

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

Priest:         Father of mercy, you call us to be open to the needs of those around us.  Hear

 

                   our prayers for our fellow brothers and sisters.  Guide us according to your

 

                   ways.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.
