Prayers of the Faithful: Third Sunday of Advent 2018

Third Sunday of Advent

December 16, 2018

Let us pray to use our possessions wisely and that we may learn to serve others by sharing our earthly goods during this Advent season. Let us live and love in deep gratitude.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray that Pope Francis and our bishops may live and teach with integrity this Advent. For our Universal Church as we learn gratitude in the midst of struggle, conflict and uncertainty.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us rejoice in the Lord and work for justice in this season of preparation. We pray for the end of racism, violence, hunger and discrimination. We pray that peace will guard our hearts.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us be confident and unafraid in prayer as we raise our families and model hope to those we love. We pray for the wellbeing of our children and our grandchildren, especially our loved ones far from home.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us live with no anxiety or worry even in the midst of our grief. We pray that consolation may find a home within us no matter our loss. We pray that our emptiness may lead us to joy in Christ Jesus.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for our loved ones and strangers who have journeyed through death to a new presence with Christ Jesus. We pray for all who have died…

We pray to the Lord.
