Bidding Prayers for the Feast of Christ the King

Feast of Christ the King

My brothers and sisters, we proclaim that Christ is theUniversal King, and, in his name, we ask the Father for all the graces neededfor the Church and for the world, that his kingdom may come on earth.

Let us pray for Pope Benedict, the Bishops and for all our clergy, who spend their lives in the service of all of us. May God bless them, giving them strength of character, wisdom and devotion.                                                                  
Lord, hear us.

We pray for parents,  especially those within our own parish. We ask God to help them in the daily routine of bringing up their children with gentle discipline, promoting their education, and teaching them to know and love Him as their Father and friend.                                                                                                             
Lord, hear us.

We pray for all young people, especially those who follow their faith in the face of misunderstanding and ridicule. We pray for the work of our Diocesan Youth Services in promoting the faith. 
Lord, hear us.

We pray for those who have died. May God give them peace, and sustain their families and friends that they may find solace in the certainty of their continued life with Him. 
Lord, hear us.

We ask that Mary, Mother of God, pray with us as we say, Hail Mary …

Let us pray silently for our own intentions.

Father, you call us to be part of your kingdom of which Christ is King. 
We make our prayers to you with trust in his loving rule, 
for he reigns for ever and ever.
