Intercessions ~ Fifth Sunday in Lent

We hear reports of terrorist violence every day now./ We pray for our troubled world/ and for the healing of angry hearts and minds,/ mindful of the sadness of Tunisia this week./ We pray to the Lord.

We pray for Pope Francis/ asking the blessings of health and safety,/ and for all who lead religious communities to be agents of peace and reconciliation./ We pray to the Lord.

We ask healing for all whose lives are shaken or unstable,/ remembering the many who are stressed and damaged by war./ We pray to the Lord.

The springtime reminds us that we can change./We ask to know how we need to grow into the new mind of Christ./ We pray to the Lord.

As Easter approaches,/ so does the Jewish Passover./ We pray for the Jewish People,/ God's Chosen People/ asking for them fidelity to the Covenant God has made with them./ We pray to the Lord.

For those suffering terribly in the South Pacific Islands of Vanuatu,/ where a cyclone has brought enormous destruction./ We ask for the global help which is sorely needed./ We pray to the Lord.

And we pray for those who have died,/ to enter the place of light and life,/ where Jesus has led./ We pray to the Lord. 


  1. There is so much suffering in the world I will remember all of these in my prayers this week. Thank you.

  2. Amen. Let us all pray together in spiritual community for all these things.
