Biddings for Lent 2

Bidding Prayers for Lent 2

Priest: Loving Lord, we place all our hope in you as we come with our concerns for our own needs, and the needs of the world.

Reader:
For Pope Francis; clergy and religious; and for the whole Church.  May we work together in our calling to be faithful witnesses and so draw all we meet to experience the meaning and purpose of the Gospel message.
Lord in your mercy

For vocations to the priesthood, permanent diaconate and religious life.  May the Holy Spirit guide the hearts and minds of those called by the Lord and give them courage to commit their lives unstintingly to the service of others. 
Lord in your mercy.

For the people of Ukraine and the Middle East and for all other troubled areas of the world. May Christ’s love touch them with peace and rest.
Lord in your mercy.

For CAFOD and other Aid Agencies as they face continual demands on their resources from so many parts of the world, that their work may be generously resourced and richly blessed by God. 
Lord in your mercy

For those who have recently died, and for all whose anniversaries occur at this time, may they rest in the peace and in joy of heaven.
Lord in your mercy

We ask Our Blessed Lady to help us in our prayers, as we say - Hail Mary.

Now in silence we pray for our own needs and intentions.

Priest: God our loving Father, we ask you to listen to all our prayers which we make them in faith and in the name of Jesus your Son who is Lord for ever and ever. Amen.

With confidence in God’s loving mercy, we now offer Him our prayers for this day.

For Pope Francis and Archbishop Bernard; may they be faithful teachers, wise administrators and holy priests.  May their word and example inspire the priests and people of this diocese.
Lord in your mercy

For World leaders; that they will do everything in their power to extend education to all and to combat the extremist forces that are terrorising the world.
Lord, in your mercy 

For those involved in education: teachers and support staff, school governors, catechists and youth leaders, that they may help young people to fulfil their potential and become confident members of the community.
Lord in your mercy

For ourselves: that we may have the peace of heart to listen deeply to Christ’s teaching message, and in faith we say “Speak Lord, your servant is listening.”  and so commit ourselves to him.
Lord in your mercy, 

We commend to the Lord all who have died, especially Fr Vincent Royles. May they have light and peace.
Lord in your mercy

We now offer our private prayers and intentions to Our Lord.

Lord Our God, help us to love you above all things with a love that is worthy of you. Look kindly on the prayers of your people made today through your son Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you, one God forever and ever. Amen.
