Bidding Prayers/Intercessions for Trinity Sunday

Trinity Sunday

The Priest says:
Dear Friends, in the name of Jesus Christ who redeemed us, and the Holy Spirit who sanctifies us, we make our prayers to God our Father.

Reader:
We pray for the Church,
that she may always proclaim the eternal truth of salvation,
and the love of God the three in One.
Lord, hear us. Lord, graciously hear us.

We pray for the peace and unity of the world,
as God is three persons and yet a perfect Unity,
may all peoples be joined together in peace and may conflict come to an end.
Lord, hear us. Lord, graciously hear us.

We pray for those who suffer and for those who care for them,
may the love of the Holy Trinity be their hope and comfort.
Lord, hear us. Lord, graciously hear us.

We pray for those who have died,
as they have known the disunity and uncertainty of this life, may they enjoy the harmony and certainty of life eternal.
Lord, hear us. Lord, graciously hear us.

We pray for a renewal of our baptismal commitment,
may we who have been baptised in the name of Father, Son and Holy Spirit
be faithful to the vows which were made.
Lord, hear us. Lord, graciously hear us.

We pray with Mary, Mother of God. Hail Mary .

Let us pray for a moment in silence,
making our prayers to God our almighty Father.

The priest concludes the prayers:
Father, in the power of the Spirit, we make these prayers through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

I hope you don't mind but I used your intercessions for Trinity as the basis for our intercessions on Sunday 30th in St John's Anglican Church, Glacis, Seychelles.

You expressed the mystery of the trinity and effectively linked it to the real world.

thanks Gerry

I frequently visit your site to borrow some of your intercessory prayers for our Church (St. Anne Catholic Church)that are very effective. Thanks for sharing.

I was searching for words and sentiments for our prayers of Intercession when I came across yours. I hope you will not mind me using yours as they are so in tune with what I feel we should pray on Trinity Sunday. Thank you for sharing your gift of words as we pray (Christ Church Anglican Church, Geelong Australia ) Joy Baxter
