Sunday Intercessions ~ Twenty Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Christians suffer terribly in parts of Syria, Pakistan, India, China, North Korea, Uzbekistan and other countries./ We pray in solidarity with these believers, / asking for their consolation and the relief of their pain./ We pray to the Lord

In Respect Life Month we pray for prisoners all around the world./ We ask for their inner healing and the conversion of their hearts to the truth of God's love./ We pray to the Lord.

As we stand at the altar this Sunday,/ we pray for the parishes of our diocese and for parishes everywhere,/ asking for an increase of faith, hope and love among us./ We pray to the Lord.

Always we bring to Mass the concerns of the sick:/ praying for those who are unwell in body,/ mind or spirit./ For the healing of families who are not relating well/ and for those enslaved in addictions./ We pray to the Lord.

We stand in a prayerful solidarity with the children who suffer,/ the poor,/ the elderly,/ the baby in the womb,/ and refugees who have fled conflict and war./ We ask for the softening of human hearts./ We pray to the Lord.

We pray for the people who have helped or served us in any way this week,/ asking never to take anything for granted,/ but to have awake and grateful hearts./ We pray to the Lord.

Finally,/ we pray for those who have died,/ asking that they would behold the Lord Jesus in his Easter brightness./ We pray to the Lord.

  1. For those who have served us. How easy it is to forget the little differences that people bring to our lives. Taking for granted that our friends and even strangers have reached out a helping hand. I will use this Intercession as a reminder to say an extra thank you to the people I love. And that I should never assume their kindnesses will always be there for me.
