18th Sunday in Ordinary Time : Bidding Prayers / Intercessions / Prayer of the Faithful


Our Lord has taught us to seek the kingdom of heaven before all things else. Let us then pray to him:

Let us pray for Francis our Pope, Archbishop Bernard, and auxiliary bishops that God will guide them in the fulfilment of the obligations of their office. Lord in your Mercy

Let us pray for all the priests of our diocese; strengthen them in the spirit to carry out your work. Lord in your mercy

Where our treasure is, there will our hearts be also. Inspire us, O Lord, with a deep love for heaven and with an awareness of the passing nature of this world. Lord in your mercy

That those who are without work or homes or who are otherwise in serious need may find understanding and welcome, as well as concrete help in overcoming their difficulties." Lord in your mercy

Let us pray for all who have died; especially for those who encouraged us in our faith by their example. As we pray for them, may they in turn continue to pray for us that we may stay true to our faith and give example ourselves to others. Lord in your mercy

Let us ask Mary to join her prayers to ours as we say Hail Mary…

Let us now pray for a moment in silence

We are reborn to a new life in you, 0 Lord. May we set our hearts on the things that are in heaven and so use earthly things as not to lose things eternal.
