16th Sunday : Bidding Prayers / Intercessions / Prayer of the Faithful


Through the Gospel, the Lord Jesus calls us to share in his glory. Let us make our prayer with him to the Father for the needs of the Church and of the world.


We pray for all nations, that they may seek the way that leads to peace, that human rights and freedom may be everywhere respected, and that the world's resources may be generously shared. Lord, hear us.

We pray for the Church, that her priests may find occasion to 'rest for a while' and be faithful shepherds to God's people Lord, hear us.

We pray for ourselves, that in the coming week we may serve others in our work, and find peace when we rest. Lord, hear us.

We pray for those in need and those who care for them, that Christ may bring them comfort and strength. Lord, hear us.

We pray for the faithful departed, that through God's mercy they may rest in peace. Lord, hear us.

We ask Our Lady to pray for us and with us as we say together. Hail Mary.

Let us pray in silence for our own needs.


Father, hear the prayers of the family you have gathered here before you. In mercy and love unite all your children, wherever they may be. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
