Intercessions ~ Twenty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time


Mary ~ Maris Stella ~ Star of the Sea

Labor Day is observed this Monday./ Offering prayers for the unemployed/ we remember as well those whose work benefits us in any way/ and for those whose work is dangerous,/ dirty,/ exhausting,/ or whose wage or work conditions are unjust./ We pray to the Lord.

With St. Paul we ask to be transformed by the renewal of our minds/ discerning God's will by what is good,/ pleasing and perfect./ We pray to the Lord.

As September begins we pray for those who celebrate birthdays,/ anniversaries and other days of remembrance,/ asking the blessings of good health,/ peace and safety./ We pray to the Lord.

We pray blessings too for the those who return to school:/ students and teachers./ Grant us all the desire to learn those things that will make of our world a happier place of friendship and growth for all./ We pray to the Lord.

Give the knowledge of your truth to those who do murderous things/ or who believe there are military solutions to what ails our world./ We pray to the Lord.

We ask for gifts of healing where there are racial divisions,/ spiritual or emotional sickness,/ pained families and mourning./ We pray to the Lord.

And for all who have died/ give an immortality of joy - especially those who have lived in ignorance,/ hatred,/ fear,/ angry disbelief or loneliness./ We pray to the Lord.

  1. I ask prayers for each other, for our unnamed afflictions that we wrestle in silence with everyday. That we may have the good graces to help others in spite of these.
