19th Sunday of the Year : Bidding Prayers / Intercessions / Prayer of the Faithful


We turn now in prayer to God our Father who is the one who has drawn us here to celebrate his gift of life.


For the needs of the whole Church.
May the Lord assist the Church under the leadership of Pope Benedict to be an active and effective sign of his life in the world.
Lord hear us.

We pray for the discouraged.
May the Lord give new hope and strength to those who are suffering from disappointments, and the effects of failure.
Lord hear us.

At this time of exam results we pray for our young people.
May the Lord grant them the fullness of life that he offers to all who follow him.
Lord hear us.

For those who have died.
May the Lord greet them with love and mercy and grant them the happiness of the kingdom.
Lord hear us.

Now let us ask Mary the Mother of God and the Mother of the Church to join her prayers to ours as we say: Hail Mary…

Let us bring to God our own intentions in silence.


Father in heaven, you continue to draw us to yourself and claim us as your own by the gift of the Spirit. We ask that you guide and sustain us on our journey, as we strive to walk in the way of Jesus, your Son. We make this prayer in his holy name. Amen.
