Prayers of the Faithful for March 25 & 26, 2017
Let us pray now for ourselves and for all who need to be seen with God’s eyes.
For the Church: that we may open our hearts to God and acknowledge Jesus as the source of light and the witness of truth, we pray:
For all who suffer from spiritual blindness: that the living Word of God may dissipate their blindness and enable them to see God’s love for them and recognize God’s action in the world, we pray:
For our RCIA Candidates who are preparing for the Easter Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist; for all Catechumens and Candidates everywhere, we pray:
For freedom from judgments: that we may be open to the uniqueness of each person and be free from reducing them to a single behavior or characteristic, we pray:
For all whose lives are darkened by addiction: that the light of the Gospel may open a new path before them, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, including, Jodi Bgellum, Joyce Muehlbauer, Allison Jurkovich. May they be touched by the healing hand of Jesus, we pray:
For those who have died, that God will welcome them into the fullness of light and life for all eternity, we pray:
Merciful God, you desire to heal our inability to see with eyes of faith. Hear our prayers and bring us to the fullness of life. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
