Version 3

Sunday March 3, 2019

Prayers of the Faithful

 

Let us pray to remove the beam in our own eyes, so we may perceive our path to virtue and integrity. May our eyes glimpse the beauty of faith.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray to lift people up when they are bowed down by hopelessness, when hatred fractures our society, when loneliness bends our shoulders and when discouragement shadows our days.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray to encourage faith among our children, hope among our families, and kindness among neighborhoods. We pray wisdom may bear fruit among us and shade our restlessness.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for our brothers and sisters who are ill and wrestling with horrific questions about their future. We pray we may extend our lives to all the sick in service and prayer.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray that we may know the protection of God for all human life in every generation and time. We pray love may sprout from despair and hope may bloom with honesty.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for our loved ones who have died. We pray our grief may seek forgiveness, connection to our families, and faith in Christ Jesus. In this Mass…

We pray to the Lord
