Bidding Prayers / Intercessions for the 24th Sunday of the Year

24th Sunday of the Year

The Priest says:
Let us ask the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name, to send the Spirit of his Son into our hearts as we pray for the needs of the Church and of the world.

O Lord, the creator and redeemer of all mankind, we humbly pray for all men of every race and in every kind of need:
make your ways known to them, and reveal your salvation to the nations.
Lord, hear us. Lord, graciously hear us.

May the whole Church be guided and governed by your Holy Spirit,
let all who call themselves Christians be led into the way of truth and hold the faith in the unity of Spirit.
Lord, hear us. Lord, graciously hear us.

We commend to your fatherly goodness all who are afflicted or distressed,
comfort and relieve them according to their needs, and grant them the love and consolation of your Spirit.
Lord, hear us. Lord, graciously hear us.

Father, give a place of life and rest to those who have died in your peace,
may we share with them in the glory of Jesus Christ, who died to save us all.
Lord, hear us. Lord, graciously hear us.

Our Lady is the Mother of the Church and shows her care for us all by her prayers. We join our prayers with hers as we say: Hail Mary.

In a moment of silence, let us make our private petitions to God our almighty Father.

The priest concludes the prayers:
Father, hear the prayers of your Church. In your great love, make up for what is lacking in our faith. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
