Intercessions ~ The Second Sunday of Lent

Pope Francis has been pope for one year./ We ask blessings for him/ and that the world would catch his spirit of joy and hope./ We pray to the Lord.

Millions of Syrian children are suffering terribly in the fighting which afflicts their country./ We pray for them and for the agencies attempting to help./ We pray to the Lord.

Mindful of the disappearance of the Malaysian flight near China/ we pray for those who await news of loved-ones/ and for those who are searchers and helpers./ We pray to the Lord.

While there are little hints of spring/ we pray all the more for an inner Lenten springtime/ which opens us to the truth about ourselves as we stand before God./ We pray to the Lord.

We continue to pray over the world/ asking the blessings of peace and well-being for the countries of Belarus,/ Belgium,/ Belize,/ Benin,/ Bermuda and Bhutan./ And for the peaceful resolution of tensions in Ukraine./ We pray to the Lord.

For our relatives and friends,/ travelers and those who suffer in any way,/ for prisoners,/ the aged and those who struggle with special needs./ We pray to the Lord.

Grateful for God's kind mercies,/ we ask gifts of light and life for those who have died/ and consolation and faith for those who mourn./ We pray to the Lord


  1. Sometimes it is difficult to see how God is working through us to touch someone’s life, but please know that you are doing just that. Thank you.

    1. It pleases me to know that we pray together.
