Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Prayers of the Faithful

Version 3

Prayers of the Faithful

August 4, 2019

Let us strive to let go of actions that destroy the human heart and live instead in vitality, faithfulness and kindness. May these possessions lead us into eternal life.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us strive to work for justice even when we feel we are alone. May our efforts to feed the hungry, shelter the lost and protect the grieving lead us into new lands of gratitude.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us strive to invigorate the Church even when we feel discouraged and unappreciated. May our lives of prayer light a new candle for those who seek God.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for the men in the Congregation of Holy Cross who professed First Vows yesterday in Sacred Heart Church. May their education, formation and prayer in these years to come offer them a true vocation within the Church.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us strive to resist disharmony among us. May we accumulate only possessions of mercy, forgiveness and love.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us strive to remember our dead and support those who grieve on earth.

In this Mass…

We pray to the Lord.
