Intercessions ~ Pentecost Sunday




On the Feast of Pentecost/ we pray for the Church and its unity./ We ask for the Church to be a bold witness to Jesus-Risen/ a victor over fear,/ violence,/ pessimism and alienation./ We pray to the Lord.

On the Feast of Pentecost/ we pray for our families,/ asking the Holy Spirit to restore us where we are separated from each other./ We pray to the Lord.

On the Feast of Pentecost/ we pray for those who will be Confirmed this year./ We ask the Spirit of Jesus to build them up in faith,/ prayer/ and an eagerness to serve./ We pray to the Lord.

On the Feast of Pentecost/ we ask the Spirit of Jesus to melt what is frozen and to warm what is chill within us/ and to transform the Church where we need to learn mercy,/ compassion/ and salvation for all./ We pray to the Lord. 

On the Feast of Pentecost/ we make intercession for the sick and those who care for them/ asking blessings for all who hope for healing of body,/ mind or spirit./ We pray to the Lord.

On the Feast of Pentecost/ we remember those places around the world where there is great suffering:/ wars,/ natural disaster,/ oppression and poverty./ That the world of prosperity would rush to lift the weak ones to their feet./ We pray to the Lord.

Finally we pray this Memorial Day Weekend/ for those who have died in wars/ and those who mourn and miss them./ We ask for the dead to follow Jesus into the kingdom of refreshment,/ light and peace./ We pray to the Lord.
