Prayers of the Faithful for February 11 & 12, 2017
Let ask God to help us encounter Jesus who is the fulfillment of the law.
For the Church: that all members come to deeper encounters with Jesus who is the fulfillment of the law, we pray:
For the gift of courage: that God will enlighten us to make decisions based on Gospel values and empower us to put them into practice, we pray:
For a deeper spirit of honesty: that God will help us to speak and live the truth in every area of our lives, we pray:
For all who are struggling with moral decisions: that the Spirit of God will inspire them with wisdom to recognize and courage to follow the gospel in every situation, we pray:
For peace in the world, particularly in all troubled areas: that God will guide all political leaders in ending violence and protecting the innocent, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, including, Leo Malson. May they experience God’s healing touch, we pray:
For those who have died and those grieving the loss of a loved one, especially, Autumn Palomaki, the daughter of Brian and Joy Crevoiserat; may they be held in the loving arms of God, we pray:
O God, you gave the law for the good of all people. Grant us our prayers, help us to encounter Jesus who fulfills all law and leads us into the community of the kingdom of heaven. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
