Prayers of the Faithful for October 12 & 13, 2019


Let us pray for those in need and in thanksgiving for all things that call for our gratitude.


For all baptized Christians, that we may be a people of gratitude for all God has done for us, we pray:

For gratitude that there is peace, wherever it may be found — even in a world with war and conflict, we pray:

For gratitude as we recognize the gift of healing in anyone who has suffered from illness, addiction, depression or any kind of pain, we pray:

For the grace to begin again: that we may grasp the opportunities to start anew when God opens new doors and opportunities in our lives, we pray:

That during this Respect Life month, our hope in Christ’s resurrection will strengthen us in protecting the gift of human life, we pray:

We pray with Mmesoma Jessica Nwokedi and her family, as today, through Baptism, she begins her Christian journey of faith, we pray:

For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, may God’s healing love touch them and restore them to fullness of life, we pray:

For those who have died. May all who have died be forever held in the loving arms of God, we pray:


God of healing, your gifts are freely given. Help us to remember all that you do for us. Make us generous in our view of others, whose faith we may not recognize. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
