Keeping the Lord ever in our sight, let us remain steadfast in our faith, boldly offering our prayers for God’s people and for our world.

We pray for Pope Francis and all the bishops of the church. May their teaching and example awaken us to the reality of God’s abiding love.

Lord hear us.
Lord, hear our prayer.

We pray for civil leaders. May they practise true servant leadership, humbly directing their public service to the wellbeing of the communities they represent.

Lord hear us.
Lord, hear our prayer.

We pray for those who strive to earn a living, and particularly those whose businesses or livelihoods have suffered as a result of the recent restrictions. May they find satisfying, productive work, and may they be rewarded for their efforts and respected in the workplace.

Lord hear us.
Lord, hear our prayer.

We pray for all those priests who have retired or moved to new parishes during the recent time of restrictions. We ask for God’s blessings on them as they embark on the next stage of their ministries in these challenging circumstances.

Lord hear us.
Lord, hear our prayer.

We pray for the sick and lonely of our parish and for all who have asked for our prayers. We pray for those who have died recently and for all whose anniversaries occur at this time. May they share the rewards of their love, and rest in peace, enjoying the merits of their labours.

Lord hear us.
Lord, hear our prayer.

God of love and mercy, you show us the path of life, and the fullness of joy in your presence. May we always be confident to voice our concerns and our needs before you, through Christ our Lord. 
Amen.
