Prayers of the Faithful – February 11 & 12, 2023
Let ask God to help us encounter Jesus who is the fulfillment of the law.
- For the Church: that we may persistently seek greater holiness and never be satisfied with merely fulfilling the letter of the law, we pray:
- For the gift of courage: that God will strengthen us as we make difficult moral decisions and empower us to put the values of the teachings of Jesus into practice, we pray:
- For fuller honesty: that God will help us to speak and act truthfully in every situation and activity in our lives, we pray:
- For all who have experienced divorce: that God will heal their pain, renew their self- worth, and help them to draw strength from the community of faith, we pray:
- For those impacted by the two earthquakes in Turkey and Syria that have left thousands of families without shelter in freezing temperatures, that God will strengthen and inspire the caregivers, comfort those who have been harmed, and embrace those who have died, we pray:
O God, you gave the law for the good of all people. Grant us our prayers, help us to encounter Jesus who fulfills all law and leads us into the community of the kingdom of heaven. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
