Prayers of the Faithful for July 25 & 26, 2015
My friends, we who have gathered here to be fed in this Eucharist remember and pray for all who need to be nourished in any way.
For the Church: that it may grow in its identity as a Eucharistic people, we pray:
For all who endure hunger each day, particularly orphans, refugees and the marginalized: that God will open avenues for food to reach them and help our hearts to be more sensitive to their needs and more aware of our abundance, we pray:
That the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, and all those who spread the Gospel, receive adequate resources for comforting the suffering and feeding the hungry, we pray:
For all who bring food to our table each day, for farmers, for harvesters, for transporters, for grocers, and for cooks: that God will bless them abundantly and renew their life and well being, we pray:
For care and protection of the environment that provides food for the whole world, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, including Bill Nord. May they find comfort and healing, through God’s love, we pray:
For those who have died, and for all who mourn their passing, we pray:
God of power and promise, you have fed your people throughout the ages in word and deed. You feed us at the Eucharistic table and call us to be mindful of all who are hungry. Grant us the grace to be worthy of this calling and to feed others as you feed us. We pray in the name of your Son, Jesus, who gives himself to us in bread and wine. Amen.
