Prayers of the Faithful for September 22 & 23, 2018


We who are called to follow Jesus pray now for ourselves, for one another and for the world.


For the church, that it may be a faithful servant of Christ, we pray:

For an end to conflict and strife between individuals, within families and communities, we pray:

For our sisters and brothers in Gris-Gris, may God bless them and Fr. Fayant as he continues his ministry at St. Rose of Lima, we pray:

For all who serve the poor and marginalized: that God will strengthen them as they show love and compassion and that they may find Christ in all whom they serve, we pray:

For openness to God’s Word: that all gathered here will open their hearts to understand God’s calling each day, we pray:

For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers. May all who suffer be healed by God’s loving touch and by the prayers of this community, we pray:

For those who have died, may they experience the peace and joy of God’s kingdom, we pray:


God who sustains us, we look to you when truth overwhelms us and our courage wavers. Help us to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, especially when they take us where we do not want to go. We pray in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen
