Prayers of the Faithful   December 31, 2022/January 1, 2023


God sent the divine Son to bring us salvation and peace. Let us pray that we and all people in our world may be blessed this year.


  • That all members of the church continually make known God’s ongoing revelation of the message of salvation, we pray:
  • That all people of the world enjoy peace and receive justice during this new year, we pray:
  • That those who lack spiritually and materially receive from the generosity of this community what they need to grow in fullness of life, we pray:
  • That those who resolve to live healthier and holier lives this year be sustained by the Holy Spirit’s wisdom and guidance, we pray:
  • That each of us during this coming year learn from Mary how to hear, accept, and say yes to God’s word of salvation, we pray:
  • For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers including Albert Fischer, and Don Kuhl. May they find comfort in God’s love and from the care of their family and friends, we pray:
  • For those who have died, especially Angelo Giambanco, father of David Ivey;) may all who have died be forever held in the loving arms of God, we pray:


God of peace and justice, you bless us and are gracious to us beyond all measure: hear these our prayers that we might live as faithful daughters and sons of Mary our Mother. We ask this through her son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
