4th Sunday of the Year (C) : Bidding Prayers / Intercessions / Prayer of the Faithful


Priest: We turn to the Lord, our help and our refuge, and ask him for all we need. 

Reader: For the Church, the Pope, all our bishops, priests and deacons that they may confidently proclaim the Word of God and be firm in their adherence to Christ’s message of love, especially to the poor, weak or oppressed.
Lord in your mercy. 

May all missionaries - priests, religious and lay people - persevere in their work of bringing Christ to others, and receive abundant rewards.
Lord in your mercy. 

For all married people: 
May they all grow sensitive to each other’s needs, and grow daily more in love for each other.
Lord in your mercy.
 For the sick, elderly and housebound, and those in any sort of distress: may they know the healing power of God’s love.
Lord in your mercy.
 For all those in our parish or families who have died and gone before us to their eternal rest. Lord in your mercy.

Together we ask for the intercession of Our Blessed Lady as we say. Hail Mary…

Now we pray for a while in silence for our personal needs.

Priest: Heavenly Father, confident in your saving help, we offer you all our prayers through Jesus, your Son, who lives and reigns with you, forever and ever. Amen
