Prayers of the Faithful for April 12 & 13, 2014 (Palm Sunday)
My brothers and sisters in Christ, as we enter this Holy Week, let us pray for our world and ourselves, asking God for what we need to make a holy difference.
- For a holy week of peace in those places where there is violence, we pray . . .
- For a holy week of unity among all Christians, we pray . . .
- For a holy week for those without homes, without jobs, without a means to provide for their loved ones, we pray . . .
- We pray today for this community as we enter these holy days together. especially for those who will be received into the church at Easter, we pray . . .
- For a holy week for those who are ill and have asked for our prayers especially Stan Hartung, John Brezinski. May all who suffer be encouraged by our brother Jesus, who conquered suffering and death, we pray . . .
- For those who have died especially Sergio Gambucci, the father of Ann Gambucci-Nesseth; Norman Chan, the husband of Kathy Chan. And for those who are dying, and for those who are grieving the passing of a loved one, we pray . . .
