Prayer of the Faithful

1st Sunday of Lent

February 14, 2016

For the Church: that we may be faithful to our identity as children of God and remain single-minded in seeking to do God’s will.

We pray to the Lord.

For the grace of reflection and awareness: that we may slow down and be aware of the hungers of our heart and recognize the gifts that God wishes to give us.

We pray to the Lord.

For the grace to face temptations: that the Spirit of God will lead us to freedom and wholeness as we face trials and temptations in life.

We pray to the Lord.

For all who are estranged from the church: that the Spirit will heal their wounds, give them a new understanding and help them find a welcoming community to support them on their faith journey.

We pray to the Lord.

For vocations to religious life, the priesthood, the permanent diaconate, marriage and the single life.

We pray to the Lord.

For all those suffering mentally, physically or spiritually: let us pray especially for those whose names have been placed on our altar.

We pray to the Lord.

For all parishioners and loved ones who have died: that God will meet them face to face on their journey to eternal life.

We pray to the Lord.
