Prayers of the Faithful

July 21, 2019

16th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Let us learn to pray as Mary did in the gospel, peering into the life and face of Jesus Christ. May we all bring our needs to the feet of our Savior.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us learn to serve as Martha did, may we not fret or be discouraged as we give of ourselves to people most in need. Let us create communities of hospitality and freedom.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for people who struggle with faith and who cannot worship within the Church because of the issues of clerical abuse and cover-ups.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for our children and grandchildren, the integrity of our families and the hope of our nation. May our inner lives of prayer become the source of justice and peace.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for all monks, hermits and all contemplatives within the Church. May they learn a genuine prayer for every person on earth. May their hearts be aflame with love for people’s needs.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for our dying and for those who have died in these past weeks. In this Mass…

We pray to the Lord.
