18th Sunday of the Year : Bidding Prayers / Intercessions / Prayer of the Faithful

18th Sunday of the Year

Father, in today's Gospel we have heard how Jesus took pity on the crowd; so it is with confidence that we place our needs before you in his name.


We pray in the words of St. Paul that nothing will come between us and the love of Christ, Not even if we are troubled or worried, or being persecuted, or lacking food or clothes, or being threatened or even attacked. That through all these trials we will triumph, by the power of him who loves us. Lord, in your mercy

We pray for those who have the goods of this world but who still hunger for the food that doesn't perish. May they find the answer to their deepest needs in drawing close to Jesus, the Bread of Life.
Lord, in your mercy

For the Christian communities of the Middle East, especially in the Holy Land, in and around Mosul in Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Iran and all troubled areas of the world, that Christ may bring them comfort and strength.
Lord, in your mercy

For our relatives and friends who have died. May death not separate them from the love of God made visible in Christ Jesus, our Lord.
Lord, in your mercy

We ask Mary, Queen of Peace, to intercede for all God’s people, living and dead, as we pray together: Hail Mary…

God, our Father, grant that we who are nourished today by the Body and Blood of Christ, may be filled with his Holy Spirit, and become one body, one spirit in Christ.
