This week’s Bidding Prayers

Bidding prayers – Sunday 4th July 2021

For the Church
For all those involved in bringing our shared ministry to the people of Upholland and beyond. For Pope Francis, the head of our church and especially for his monthly intention that in social, economic, and political situations of conflict, we may be courageous and passionate architects of dialogue and friendship.
Lord in your mercy… Hear our prayer.

For our parish
Give strength to all within our parish. Let the zeal of those who are about to make their first Holy Communion spread throughout our parish and beyond. Let the joy of their coming of age remind us that we are all baptised in Christ as priest, prophet and king.
Lord in your mercy…Hear our prayer.

For those who are particularly in need of your love at this time: the troubled peoples of the world affected by the coronavirus pandemic; those who have lost loved ones to this disease and in conflict throughout the World; for all who are ignorant of your great love and mercy; we pray.
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. We ask that you give your strength to those who care for the sick and dying and give eternal rest to those who have recently died.
Lord in your mercy…Hear our prayer.

Let us pray for a moment in silence for our own intentions.

Let us bring these and all the prayers on our prayer board to the intersession of our mother Mary, as we say: Hall Mary
