Prayer of the Faithful

PRAYER OF THE FAITHFUL : 19th Sunday through the Year (A)

 

PRIEST:          God, the Father, calls us to follow His Son. In faith and trust, we offer Him our prayers and concerns.

Priest: Lord hear us…

 

READER:      We pray for the Queen and her Government. May they defend the rights of the poorest and weakest in society.

                        Priest: Lord hear us…

 

READER:      We continue to pray for those whose lives have been devastated by hurricanes, storms and earthquakes. May all nations of the world help those who are in need.

                        Priest: Lord hear us…

 

READER:      We join with the whole diocese in praying for the Priests and people of the parishes of St Nicholas of Tolentino, St Joseph, and St Patrick in Bristol.

                        Priest: Lord hear us…

 

READER:      We pray for all those who are sick, at home or in hospital, especially those who are known to us. We commend to Almighty God the souls of all who have died recently, those whose anniversaries occur at this time, and those who will die this day an unprepared death.

                        Priest: Lord hear us…

 

READER:      Rejoicing in the fellowship of the St Michael the Archangel, and all the saints we beg the intercession for Our Lady, St Mary of Glastonbury Hail Mary…

Let us pray for a moment in silence.

 

PRIEST:         Heavenly Father, hear these our prayers and grant them it they are in accordance with you will, for the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ…
