Prayers of the Faithful - 22nd November 2020
Let us provide a place in our hearts and minds for Christ to reign and guide us in prayers for our needs and those of others.
We pray for the church for help to seek and promote the hope, joy and peace that the Christ child brings to the world.
Lord hear us........ Lord graciously hear us
Pope Francis has said that the poor are at the heart of the Gospel. Let us pray that we may be aware of their needs throughout the World and in our own community by providing not only materials but also comfort in fellowship.
For World conflicts. We pray that local and World leaders may work together towards healing divisions and especially to bring opposing factions together in peace from the brink of civil war in Ethiopia.
We pray for the scientific communities to develop COVID vaccines for all mankind and also that the misconceptions of those who fear the vaccines may be allayed.
Let us pray for those who have died that they may seek and
find their salvation through God’s abundant grace and that the bereaved may be consoled. We ask Mary, our mother to pray with us as we say:
Lord God who understands our weaknesses, grant our petitions through Jesus your son and Universal king who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.
