Sunday's Prayer of the Faithful
Cel ----- Gathered in the spirit of unity, joy and hope, and inspired by the Holy Spirit, we pray
For the Church: that we may be transformed and renewed through the Spirit’s presence in our hearts, Lord hear us
For a Spirit of unity: that God will destroy all the divisions that separate the human family and help us to recognize God’s love as the common source of our life, Lord hear us
For a Spirit of hope: that all who are overwhelmed by life may find new reasons to live this day and be gifted with a vision of a better tomorrow, Lord hear us
For a Spirit of justice in the world: that the needy, the exploited, the abused, and the victims of war may know freedom, relief from oppression, and their dignity as daughters and sons of God, Lord hear us
For all who have died, especially those of our family and neighbourhood who have died recently, and for all whose anniversaries occur at this time, may they enjoy the eternal happiness of heaven, Lord hear us
Let us pray
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.
V. Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created.
R. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
