Sunday January 22, 2023 Cycle A

Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

For people striving to follow Christ in unity.  May the Holy Spirit lead us in harmony no matter the spiritual cost.

We pray to the Lord.

For people who hear the call to leave everything and follow unknown paths. May Christ Jesus lead us all to surrender our hearts to love under heaven.

We pray to the Lord.

For people who live in tangled nets of selfishness and hopelessness. May Christ’s voice free us to walk on shores of love and vibrant hope.

We pray to the Lord.

For people netted in fear and self-doubt and who keep the risk of faith at bay. May Christ call us all to discipleship of courageous action.  

We pray to the Lord.

For people lost upon landscapes of mistrust and hardship where their hearts remain baron and anxious. May Christ speak hope in every despairing life.  

We pray to the Lord.

For people who have burned their feet upon the shores of hatred and greed. May Christ carry us along the paths of respect for all humanity.

We pray to the Lord.

For people who carry personal burdens and family secrets. May Christ unleash mercy upon those who needlessly bear on their shoulders the burdens of the world.

We pray to the Lord.

For people who long to reach the eternal shore. May Christ lead our beloved dead safely home to the promises of heaven.

We pray to the Lord.

  1. I pray for all people to let all else go and walk towards the Eternal Shore. May we all meet there one day and be brothers and sisters with each other in Our Lord Jesus Christ. O Happy Day
