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


Let us turn to God, our guide, for all our needs.


For Pope Francis, for Archbishop Bernard and his assistant bishops and for all church leaders, that they may lead God's people in the ways of true wisdom.
Lord in your mercy

For those in our diocese who are to be ordained to the Permanent Diaconate this weekend. Lord, grant that they may always serve, but learn to do so with prudence, knowing when to act, when to instruct, and when to listen.
Lord in your mercy.

For our parish, that it may extend its hospitality and concern for those suffering during the current heat wave and to all those in need, always recognising the mystery of Christ in our midst.
Lord in your mercy

For the sick; may the inevitable distractions, suffering and cares of their illness or infirmity not keep them from sitting patiently at the feet of Christ.
Lord in your mercy

We pray for the faithful departed, [especially N]
Now their journey of faith is over, may they enjoy the full revelation of Christ's glory.
Lord in your mercy

Let us turn to Our Lady who lived a life of action and reflection, to intercede for us as we say,
Hail Mary…

Let us pray for our own intentions in silence.


God our loving Father,
we pray that you will accept these prayers
in the name of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
