Divine Mercy Sunday : The Universal Prayer / Bidding Prayers / Intercessions / Prayer of the Faithful

Bidding Prayers: Divine Mercy Sunday



Let us turn to God asking for all our needs and the needs of the Church and of all mankind.



For Pope Francis.  May he draw the whole Church closer to the mercy of Jesus who enabled the apostle Thomas to move from his doubt to complete faith in Jesus, our Lord and God.

Lord in your mercy


For unbelievers and doubters: 

through our witness to the joy of Easter, may come to faith and trust in the merciful love of God.

Lord in your mercy


For politicians throughout the world: 

in their policies and their decisions may they be in inspired by God’s loving mercy for all people. 

Lord in your mercy


For persecuted Christians:  

May they be aware of the prayers of the whole Church 

and experience the merciful presence of the Risen Lord 

Lord in your mercy


For all who have died: 

May the Lord grant eternal rest to all the departed: especially those who have no-one to pray for them.   

Lord in your mercy


Let us ask Our Lady to join her prayers to ours as we say - Hail Mary


In silence let us bring our own intentions to God.



Almighty God, in your great mercy, we ask you to answer all our prayers which we make in faith through Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
