The Baptism of the Lord 2020: Prayers of the Faithful

Version 3

January 12, 2020

Baptism of the Lord

Let us pray that our baptism in Christ Jesus may speak boldly of God’s compassion within the Church. May we work for justice and peace within our world and bridge all strained relationships with compassion.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray to ignite hope within the depths of our baptism for all who are lost and wearied by life. May we reveal to every human being their dignity and worth here on earth.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for people who suffer depression and loneliness in these winter months. May we spark love and connection for those who feel most alone and those threatened by fear.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray to renew the gift of our own baptism so we may continue the mission of the Church here on earth. May we learn to listen more attentively to the Holy Spirit and live in communion with our neighbor.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us work diligently for those without clean water, adequate education, and sufficient health care. May we work for the basics of life for people in need.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us remember our beloved dead. Let us grieve with hope as recall their memory. In this Mass…

We pray to the Lord.
