Prayers of the Faithful for October 25 & 26, 2014
Let us ask God for the grace to become imitators of Jesus, and for the courage to do our part in God’s kingdom on earth.
- For all those who do pastoral work: ministers, chaplains, counselors, catechists and all who proclaim by their lives the love God has for each of us… we pray:
- For all those who help us pray: for Presiders, Musicians, Lectors, and Liturgists who by their proclamation and their example help spread the Gospel… we pray:
- For world leaders and all people of influence: for the success of efforts to alleviate suffering; for the work of those who make good public policy; for all who share their gifts with others … we pray:
- We pray for children and young people: for those dear to us and those dear to others, and those who have no one to care for them … we pray:
- For those whose lives have no dignity: for the unborn, the under-nourished, those born without adequate healthcare, for the elderly in nursing homes, for victims of torture and for those wrongly imprisoned…we pray:
- For those who are ill and have asked us to pray for them including Tony Reckinger, Jeff Knutson, Henry Valo. May all who are ill find wellness in body and soul...we pray:
- We remember those who have died, especially (names). May all who have died find peace in the arms of God...we pray:
Loving God, hear the prayers of your people gathered here. Satisfy the longing of our hearts and bring all of us together to the fulfillment of your plan for us. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
