GENERAL INTERCESSIONS

 

 

 

Feast of the Epiphany – Year B

 

 

 

7th January 2018

 

 

 

 

 

Priest:         As we celebrate the arrival of the Wise Men at the Epiphany, we pray for wisdom to illumine our own hearts and the heart of the world …

 

 

 

Reader:      Today is the World Day of Prayer for Peace.  We pray for the LIGHT of inner peace will shine for ALL peoples and will allow whole communities, governments and countries to live in harmony with each other.

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

On this feast of the Epiphany when the Wise Men came to worship the Christ-child we pray for true wisdom in our own communities: may we turn away from ways of hatred and corruption and turn towards unity and understanding of other people.   

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

We pray for the family of our world and especially for all who struggle at this time of year with no shelter, no home and no clothes.  May there be an end to oppression so that all of God’s people might find peace and hope.

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

We pray for our own families: for all who are ill at this time at home and in hospital; for all who are returning to school and work this week; and for all family and friends who are down hearted at this time.  May they find hope in JESUS CHRIST, the Light of the World.

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

We pray for the repose of the souls of RINA VICKERS, ALAN GREEN, PATRICIA GRANT and KATE McFADDEN all who have died: that they may all receive the reward of their labours in the Kingdom of Heaven.

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

And now we pray in silence for our own personal intentions … (Pause)

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

Priest:         Father of all, listen to these prayers and answer our needs as we seek to build up your family in love.  Lead us to be wise like the Wise Men in today’s Epiphany so that the world can be built up with the values of dignity and justice.  We ask this through the same Christ our Lord.
