Easter 3 : The Universal Prayer / Bidding Prayers / Intercessions / Prayer of the Faithful

Third Sunday of Easter (A)



In today's Gospel we hear how when Jesus broke the bread, the disciples' eyes were opened and they recognised him. Let us pray that our eyes, too, may be opened to God's infinite love 



For Pope Francis. May all our church leaders aspire to integrity and deep faith and lead us forward into a bright future. 

Lord, in your mercy    


For Peace in our troubled world, especially for those who suffer in places of violence and conflict. May Christ's love touch them with courage and safety.

Lord, in your mercy 


Let us pray for all who feel lost and uncared for

that the Lord will again show compassion to those who have wandered from him, 

and empower us to lead others to his presence.

Lord, in your mercy.


For all who have died and especially those whose anniversaries occur at this time.  

May they rest in peace with Christ and rise with him in glory. 

Lord, in your mercy .


We turn in prayer to Our Lady, ask her to join her prayers with ours as we say. 

Hail Mary …


Silently we pray for our own intentions.



Almighty God, 

by whose Spirit the the Church is sanctified and governed,

hear our humble prayers, 

that by the gift of your grace, 

we all may serve you faithfully.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
