Prayers of the Faithful                             February 13 & 14, 2021


Let us pray with compassionate hearts for all who are in need in the world, in our communities and in our families.


  • For the Church: that we may reach out to all who have been excluded or marginalized by our society and offer acceptance and inclusion in our community, we pray:
  • For transformation: that we may present ourselves before Christ and confidently surrender to his touch all that is sinful, selfish, or alienating in our life, we pray:
  • For all who feel socially isolated: that those who have been ridiculed, laughed at, or bullied, may have their dignity as persons recognized and be welcomed into this faith community, we pray:
  • For all who are physically isolated: that God will guide us in reaching out to them, assisting with their needs, and sharing faith with them, we pray:
  • For openness to the Spirit: that we may be attentive to the invitations of God to grow and change during the coming Lenten season, we pray:
  • For all who are ill: especially Angela Bitzenhofer, that God will touch all the sick and return them to wholeness, free the human family from the coronavirus, and speed the distribution of the vaccines, we pray:
  • For those who have died and for all who mourn their passing, we pray:


Compassionate God, we turn to you in time of trouble. Help us with our own needs, and grant us the generosity and courage to reach out to others in need. Hear us, we pray, in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen
