Prayers of the Faithful October 31 & November 1, 2020
Presider: Let us pray to God who sent us the divine Son as teacher and master.
- For the Church: that, inspired by the witness of the saints, we may rely upon God’s mercy and providence as we strive to be faithful disciples, we pray:
- For a greater awareness of God’s grace at work around and within us: that we may recognize the work of God in those who love us, forgive us, teach us, and call us to be our truest selves, we pray:
- For healing: that through the intercession of the saints, God will deliver the human family from the corona virus and everything that destroys God’s gift of life, we pray:
- For honest and safe voting: that the Spirit will guide us in fulfilling our civic responsibility through voting this week and that Gospel principles may inspire our choices, we pray:
- For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers including: Larry Nalezny, Wendy Wexler, Donna Gregory, Greg Boettcher, and Gerri Migletz.
May they find comfort in the healing touch of God and by the loving care of family and friends, we pray:
- Today we pray for those who have died, especially George Kohler (COAL-urr); Mary Griffin, sister of Kate Adamek;
that God will fill them with life and give consolation and peace to those who grieve them, we pray:
Almighty God, you invite us to holiness through your beatitudes. Hear our prayers that one day we might live eternally in your love. We ask this in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
