Intercessions ~ Third Sunday of Lent

It is the first Sunday of March/ and so we pray for those who celebrate birthdays,/ anniversaries and other days of remembrance,/ asking for safety,/ peace and good health./ We pray to the Lord.

Soon it will be Spring./ We ask for the melting of resentments,/ and whatever is frozen within us,/ preventing inner freedom and the movement of God's grace./ We pray to the Lord.

Christians of the East are observing Lent now too./ We pray for them/ mindful of their poverty and great suffering./ We pray to the Lord.

We pray for world leaders,/ peace-makers,/ and soldiers who are away from home,/ for the safety of travelers/ blessings for the world's children/ and for our families./ We pray to the Lord.

We ask the blessings of joy and peace for those who are preparing for Baptism at Easter./  We pray to the Lord.

We pray for the sick,/ the frail,/ the elderly-poor,/ care-providers and those who struggle with special needs and challenges./ For those whose pain is interior:/those depressed,/ anxious or who live in inner darkness./ We pray to the Lord.

For those who have lost their lives this week by accident,/ addiction or war./ For the conversion of those who take life/ and for mourners./ We pray to the Lord.
