Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

We pray for healing among the divides of our nation and in the hateful places within our Church. May the touch of Christ Jesus bring mercy and temperance.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for love to smooth the rough edges of family life. We pray to let go of our desire to control people we love. May we learn to listen to our loved ones so to heal the common good.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for those exasperated by the daily grind. May we lift up those bowed down by hardship, financial insecurities, and long-term illness.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for our children who run and play, who use their instincts for delight and purpose. May we all learn from them the beauty of life, and the renewed joy of our spirits.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray to bring words of mercy and forgiveness along with us to our family tables and here at Mass. May God’s mercy settle into the hurts we have caused others and bring peace and stability to our schools and homes.

We pray to the Lord.

We pray for those who have carried their loved ones to their graves. May all the dead rest in the security of Jesus’ passion, death and resurrection. In this Mass we pray for…

We pray to the Lord.

  1. Dear Fr. Ron, these Prayers of the Faithful are beautiful and so down to earth. The supreme irony to me is that in this age of instant communication, we feel more isolated and divided than ever before. May this Lenten season be the very best, we are so blessed that the Church gives us time to draw down our churning fires of life’s industry, and pray and meditate on the Paschal mystery. Love and prayers for you always! -Danny Z-man
