Intercessions ~ Fourth Sunday in Lent

We begin the month of April this week,/ praying again for those who celebrate birthdays,/ anniversaries and other days of remembrance in the weeks ahead./ For the blessings of good health,/ safety and inner peace./ We pray to the Lord.

Too often the Christian Church is known more for what it is against than what it has to proclaim positively and of God./ We ask for that new outpouring of the Holy Spirit which would enable the Church to make Jesus Christ attractive to all./ We pray to the Lord.

Continuing our prayer for the countries of the world/ we pray for the nations of: Bolivia,/ Bosnia and Herzegovina,/ Botswana,/ Brunei,/ Bulgaria,/ Burkina Faso and Burundi./ For peaceful times and the well-being of all./ We pray to the Lord.

The world is a place of dark impulses:/ murder,/ lies and power-abuse./ We boldly ask God for the gift and blessing of inner light./ We pray to the Lord.

To every Mass we bring hearts that are awake and aware of the sick,/ the poor,/ those troubled, weak and burdened./ We ask for them strength,/ healing and the presence of caring, helpful persons./ We pray to the Lord.

We pray for those who die in wars and disasters./ We ask for their full joy in God's Kingdom of Love/ and for the consolation of those who mourn./ We pray to the Lord.
