This week’s Bidding Prayers

For Pope Francis’ intentions:
We pray for those who risk their lives while fighting for fundamental rights under dictatorships, authoritarian regimes and even in democracies in crisis.
Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

For our World:
As we all bear the brunt of the pandemic, may the world overcome this disaster and come out the other side with a stronger faith in our shared humanity, our shared destiny and our shared unity with the world and our creator.
Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

For our Parish:
May this Easter season renew our commitment to our Parish and our Saviour. May the good news of Christ’s resurrection so fill our hearts that we shine as beacons in a world crying out for redemption.
Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

For all those who find their lives painful and disturbing:
That the presence of the Risen Lord may be revealed to them through the compassion of their brothers and sisters.
Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

For the sick and those who mourn:
We ask Lord that you watch over those who are sick. Give your strength to those who care for the sick and dying and give eternal rest to those who have recently died. We pray for the Queen and the Royal Family at this time of bereavement.
Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Let us pray for a few moments in silence for our own needs and intentions. We add these to the prayers on our prayer board as we say Hail Mary.
