Sunday's Prayer of the Faithful

Printer-friendly version

April 12/13

Palm Sunday

 

Cel ----- Gathered as the community waiting in hope to celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus, we pray:

 

For the church in Ireland – that we may renew our faithfulness to the gospel of Jesus, and become communities of compassion in our parishes, Lord hear us

 

For all who suffer the effects of unemployment and of poverty in our country at this time, Lord hear us

 

For all who suffer torture and imprisonment like Jesus for the sake of faith in God and justice for his people, with a special prayer for the people of Syria, Lord hear us

 

For the light of Christ to be with us in times of personal darkness, anxiety and illness, Lord hear us

 

For all who have died, especially _____________________ who died recently and for all whose anniversaries occur at this time; may they enjoy the eternal happiness of heaven, Lord hear us

 

Cel --- Let us pray

 

Lord God, be with us in our Holy Week prayer. May our prayers in this week bring us to a greater appreciation of your love and care for us in the death and resurrection of Jesus, who is our Lord now and forever.  Amen.
