Intercessions 4th Sunday of the Year 28th January 2007

Priest The love of Jesus Christ
through the power of the Holy Spirit
is given to all believers.
Let us ask the Lord for the same Holy Spirit
to fill the church and the world with his love.

Reader 1. Let us pray for our holy father, Pope Benedict.
May the support of the whole church give him
the strength to continue his special mission
of care and concern for the Church and the World.
Lord in your mercy

2. Let us pray for all the people of the world
who struggle to get enough to eat.
Let us pray that the hearts of those who are not hungry
may be filled with compassion for them.
We pray for the work of Cafod and other organisations
who work to help the poor.
Lord in your mercy

3. Let us pray for the political freedom in our society
to be able to work for the good of others
in accordance with the Church’s teaching
and so without compromising our consciences
Lord in your mercy

4. We pray for all those in our parish community who are ill.
May the Lord send his healing spirit upon them,
and give to their families and friends the strength
to cope with the problems and anxieties
that the illness generates.
Lord in your mercy

Let us ask the prayers of Mary, our refuge, Hail Mary

Let us pray for a few moments in the silence of our hearts.

Priest: Father, we make our prayers to you
in the love of the Holy Spirit,
who inspired us to ask you for all that we need
in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
