Prayers of the Faithful: Fourth Sunday of Advent, December 23, 2018

Fourth Sunday of Advent

December 23, 2018

Let us pray for our Church waiting for miracles this Advent. Let us pray for wise actions and loving responses for the needs of the world. Let us serve people with all our hearts.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray that we may receive love and acceptance in Advent. We pray for healing and forgiveness in our broken relationships and within every lonely heart. May love flourish on earth.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray that our hearts may leap for joy in recognition of Christ Jesus. For people searching for sobriety, for people who are healing from cancer, for couples seeking forgiveness in their marriage. May joy create a home in all people.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for the dignity of family life. For students home from college and for our men and women home from deployment and for our children living far away. Let the face of Christ be revealed to us all.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for those who grieve this Advent. For people displaced by sudden storms, violence and fires, may they find our support. For first responders, medical personnel, all caregivers and people who provide emotional support across our country. Help us encounter Christ this Advent.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for our loved ones who have died. Let us remember their voices as we all sing God’s praise. In this Mass…

We pray to the Lord.
