The Epiphany of the Lord, Cycle A, January 8, 2023, Prayers of the Faithful

Sunday January 8, 2023 Cycle A

The Epiphany of the Lord

For people who carry the banner of leadership within the Church. May they seek the Christ in all times and ways. May they fearlessly lead us in faith.

We pray to the Lord.

For people who feel their gifts are not good enough. May the discouraged of heart find new life in Epiphany hope. May we affirm every human life and talent.

We pray to the Lord.

For people who follow the whim of the Holy Spirit. For artists, writers, dreamers and all who see most clearly the signs of the times. May we jump for joy in their courage.

We pray to the Lord.

For people who have lost homes, incomes, and health in dreaded storms, floods and winter accidents. May we welcome the suffering to safe shores of sustenance and safekeeping.

We pray to the Lord.

For people who put together puzzles of peace. May all who work with waring nations and battles in government find the solace and skill of lasting calm on earth. May their work bring us a new vision of humanity.

We pray to the Lord.

For people who bring gifts of schizophrenia in our worshiping communities. May we learn to listen to the fragile of heart and the love they offer us. May we search for God hand-in-hand with people suffering mental fragility.

We pray to the Lord.

For people who search diligently for the Christ Child. May we harken to the call of faith in this season of joy. May we not be lost in the darkness of our doubt and cynicism.

We pray to the Lord.

For people who have died and now bask in the Light of Heaven. May our loved ones rest assuredly in their eternal homes.

We pray to the Lord.

  1. My prayer is that all people would see these prayers read them they would be taken to heart. The world would be a better place. Peace, Love and Hope for the new year to you Father Ron and for all people. O Lord may all your people find you and let Your Love penetrate their heart.
