15th Sunday of the Year: Bidding Prayers / Prayers of the Faithful / Intercessions


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.



The whole creation is eagerly waiting for God to reveal his sons.
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.


Happy are your eyes because they see, your ears because they hear!
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.


What we suffer in this life can never be compared to the glory, as yet unrevealed, which is waiting for 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.


Creation retains the hope of being freed, like us, from its slavery to decadence, to enjoy the same freedom and glory as the children of God.
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.
May we hear your word as seed on rich soil,
And bear fruit one hundredfold.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
