Intercessions ~ Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time


Our Lady of Perpetual Help ~ Feastday, Monday, June 27

We pray boldly for God to intervene where we can't stop fighting,/ where destruction is extensive,/ where addictions lead to death,/ where life if most vulnerable,/ where hatred is deepest./ We pray to the Lord.

In the night-time of our anxieties,/ we ask for rest and calm,/ and that we would be able to turn to prayer and better thoughts./ We pray to the Lord.

Grant that in this charged political time,/ we would be sensible,/ balanced people/ and not overwhelmed with dire messages and predictions./ We pray to the Lord.

Bless the rescuers who helped and saved in this week's airport attack in Turkey./ Heal and comfort the injured and their loved ones,/ conversion to terrorists and murderers./ We pray to the Lord.

As we prepare to move to the altar at Mass,/ we pray all the more for the movement of our minds and hearts - awake to God's nearness./ We pray to the Lord. 

For summertime travelers,/ campers and vacationers./ For the sick and those who are forsaken in their troubles and sorrows./ We pray to the Lord. 

And for the dead,/ mindful of those who have died this week in acts of terror,/ war,/ domestic violence,/ accident,/ drug and slave trafficking./ And for mourners to be consoled./ We pray to the Lord.
