Thirty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time, Cycle C, November 6, 2022, Prayers of the Faithful, Luke 20: 27-38

For the fragile hearts of people who do not feel they belong among those they love. For wives who cry in the night and for children who feel lost in daylight and for husbands who question their decisions in life all day long.

We pray to the Lord.

For people who have lived through the difficult decisions of divorce. For children left in the wake of hurts and arguments. For unconnected families unstable about the future, uncertain about financial survival and distraught about how to love.

We pray to the Lord.

For the quest in our lives to make God first. May we not flatter ourselves about how we pray or the human techniques of accessing divine love. For people who search for something more in their uneasy relationships on earth.

We pray to the Lord.

For our loved ones who have died and their journey to heaven. May the obstacles of earthly relationships open a new door to God’s healing delight for all whom we have loved. May goodness abound in grief, may gentleness lead our hearts in loss.

We pray to the Lord.

For people who cannot bear their bodily pain on earth. May people surviving long-term illness and disease come to know the saving and healing hand of Jesus Christ. May we all learn to surrender to such love on earth.

We pray to the Lord.

For our November memories of our loved ones who have died. For the souls of relatives, strangers, and those who have died quietly on our streets. May every soul rejoice in home with God. May every soul that suffered on earth find peace in heaven.

We pray to the Lord.
