3rd Sunday of Advent : The Universal Prayer / Bidding Prayers / Intercessions / Prayer of the Faithful

Bidding Prayers/ Intercessions for the Third Sunday of Advent




God’s word tells us patiently to await all the good things that the Saviour brings. 

With confidence, we make our needs known to Him.




We pray that the Church may teach the world the patience it needs 

to await the coming of the Lord of justice, peace and life.
Lord, hear us. 


We pray that world leaders may prepare for the coming of the Lord 

by fostering harmony, authentic dialogue and sincere concern for their people.
Lord, hear us. 


We pray for our families as we prepare for Christmas,
that we may grow in patience and faith, 

and that our material preparations may not blind us to God's love, 

but that he may be central to our celebrations, so that we will rejoice at his coming.
Lord, hear us. 


We pray for the souls of those who we love but see no longer

That we all may be reunited in the Kingdom of Heaven

Lord, hear us. 


We offer these our prayers and the prayers of all God’s people, living and dead, to the intercession of Mary, Mother of the Church, as we say together: Hail Mary...


We now pray for a few moments in the silence of our hearts.



Father, as you hear our prayers,
give us patience
and lead us to the joy of eternal salvation.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
