Second Sunday of Advent 2019: Prayers of the Faithful

Version 2

Second Sunday of Advent

December 8, 2019

Let us pray for courage in our Universal Church to seek Christ Jesus. May justice flourish in our time and the fullness of peace forever.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray to wake up during these Advent days to the reality of people living in hatred, violence and hopelessness. May we hear the echoes of mercy for every person under heaven.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray that we may rouse awareness of Christ’s compassion among our lost and abandoned families and our friends and strangers alike. May Christ bring salvation to the lost, and hope for every human being.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray that our ears be attuned to the urgency of Christ’s coming in our time and world that was proclaimed by John the Baptist. May John the Baptist unite our search for hope and justice this Advent season.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for families of soldiers overseas, for orphan and foster children, for parents without adequate employment, for siblings addicted to drugs and alcohol, for our elderly cramped in loneliness.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for our departed brothers and sisters and all who await us in the glory of God’s Kingdom. In this Mass…

We pray to the Lord.
