Priest:         We know all the good things that God has given us.  Now we come to pray for all our needs …

 

 

 

Reader:      

 

1.       For the Church: that it may continue to be a witness to God’s values of love, faith and hope, defending the weakest and the poorest always.  We pray especially for our brothers and sisters in the world who are suffering now.

 

          LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

2.       On this Mission Sunday, we pray for all missionaries working far from home and family: that they may be strengthened and supported in their faith.

 

          LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

3.                 We ask God to bless today all the girls and boys who are preparing for Confirmation and Eucharist: may it be a time when they will be thankful to God for all he has given them.  We ask God to bless their parents.

 

          LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

4.                 St. Paul today tells his communities that they must be people of ‘faith in action.’  We pray therefore for ourselves: that we may remember our own call to witness to our faith and thereby attract others to the Gospel.

 

          LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

5.                 We pray for those we know who are ill at home and in hospital: in their pain may they feel God’s presence close to them

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

6.                 We pray now for PATRICIA McGOWAN and all those who have died: may they receive the light of Christ in Heaven … (Pause) …  and we pause to bring our private prayers to the Father … (Pause) ….       

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

Priest:                   God our Father, hear the spoken and unspoken prayers

 

of your children; and lead us to be people who share your values

 

and rejoice in your Kingdom.  Through Christ our Lord.
