Third Sunday of Easter : Bidding Prayers / Intercessions / Prayer of the Faithful

Third Sunday of Easter


In today's Gospel we hear how when Jesus broke the bread the disciples' eyes were opened and they recognised him. Let us pray that our eyes, too, may be opened to God's infinite love 


For Pope Francis. May all our church leaders aspire to their integrity and deep faith and lead us forward into a bright future. 

Lord, in your mercy    

For Peace in our troubled world, especially for those who suffer in places of violence and conflict. May Christ's love touch them with peace and safety.

Lord, in your mercy 

Let us pray for all who are lost and unlooked for

that the Lord will again show compassion to those who have wandered from him, and empower us to lead others to his presence.

Lord, in your mercy.

For all who have died and especially those whose anniversaries occur at this time.  May they rest in peace and rise in glory. 

Lord, in your mercy .

In this month of special devotion to Our Lady, we ask her to join her prayers to ours as we say. Hail Mary …

Silently we pray for our own intentions.


God our loving Father we ask you to accept our prayers in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
