Sunday January 29, 2023 Cycle A

Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

For people who struggle to be Church leaders. May our trailblazers surrender to God’s compassion in times of division and uncertainty.

We pray to the Lord.

For people threatened by the violence of grief. May those who have lost employment, family relationships, and even courage, discover the healing presence of Jesus Christ.

We pray to the Lord.

For people tethered to past accomplishments so to make their appearance shine falsely bright. May Christ cut our ties to pride and selfishness.  

We pray to the Lord. 

For people living under the siege of war, mass shootings, and utter violence and chaos. May we work diligently for justice across every nation under heaven.

We pray to the Lord.

For people who will never believe their own worth. May we surrender to the beauty of life even when the shroud of depression and mental illness covers our perspectives, decisions, and our faith.

We pray to the Lord.

For people who have lost the security of home. May we build a network of hope for those who survive outside with not only boards and nails but with lives of courage.

We pray to the Lord.

For people who hang their heads in shame. May they finally stand on solid ground of love and forgiveness where they will inherit inner joy.

We pray to the Lord.

For our loved ones who have died. May our beloved find home and eternal gladness in the face of Jesus Christ. May we rejoice with them here on earth.

We pray to the Lord.
