This week’s Bidding Prayers

For the Church.

Especially for the intentions of Pope Francis: that the Church in China may persevere in its faithfulness to the Gospel and grow in unity..

Lord in your mercy hear our prayer

 

For our Parish.

Especially those undertaking ASK, as they approach full communion at Easter.  May their demonstration of faith be an inspiration to their partners, children, friends and colleagues and all at St Teresa’s.

Lord in your mercy hear our prayer

 

For all in our Archdiocese of Liverpool.

That in building the community of God in this place we follow the example of Christ who welcomed the stranger and outcast in nurturing true belonging in all of God’s people.

Lord in your mercy hear our prayer

 

For the people of our world.

We ask for the Lord’s aid, in the midst of the global spread of the coronavirus, that we may experience his healing love.  Like the woman at the well, heal us from our fear, which prevents nations from working together and neighbours from helping one another.

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 all who care for the sick and dying and give eternal rest to those who have recently died.

Lord in your mercy hear our prayer

 

Now let us pray, in silence, for our own needs and intentions.

We bring these and all our prayers to the intersession of our mother Mary, as we say Hail Mary
