31st Sunday of the Year
The Priest says:
Let us pray for the whole Church of God in Christ Jesus, and for all people according to their needs.
We pray to God, the creator and preserver of all mankind, for people of every race, and in every kind of need; May he make his ways known on earth, and his saving power among all nations. Lord, hear us.
We pray for the Church throughout the world, May the Lord guide and govern us by his Holy Spirit, that all who profess and call themselves Christians may be led into the way of truth, and hold the faith in the unity of Spirit, in the bond of peace and righteousness of life. Lord, hear us.
We pray for those in need and those who care for them, We commend to God’s fatherly goodness all who are anxious or distressed in mind or body; may he comfort and relieve them in their need; give them patience in their sufferings, and bring good out of their troubles. Lord, hear us.
We pray for the faithful departed, May God hear us as we pray for those who have died in the peace of Christ, those who have confessed the faith, and those whose faith is known to him alone, that he may grant us with them a share in his eternal kingdom. Lord, hear us.
Let us ask Our Lady to pray for us. Hail Mary … In silence, let us make our private intentions to God our Father.
The priest concludes the prayers:
Almighty God, to whom our needs are known before we ask, help us ask only what accords with your will; and those good things which we dare not, or in our blindness cannot ask, grant us for the sake of your son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
