This week’s Bidding Prayers

BIDDING PRAYERS 13/14 November 2021.

For Pope Francis and all world leaders at the Cop 26 meeting:
That their proposals will reflect the fragility of our planet and the imperative to work together with unselfishness and generosity to protect our world for future generations.
Lord, in your mercy R: hear our prayer.

For all who died during war:
That on this Remembrance Sunday their families will find comfort and that those living with the physical or mental scars of warfare will find healing and new meaning in their lives.
Lord, in your mercy R: hear our prayer

For the members of our ASK group:
That as they begin the journey of getting to know Christ in a new and deeper way they will feel supported by our parish community.
Lord, in your mercy R: hear our prayer.

For the young people in our Pastoral area confirmed this week:
That the Holy Spirit will fill them with the desire to live out today’s gospel message of becoming servants of the Lord, using the world’s resources in a sustainable and creative way.
Lord, in your mercy R: hear our prayer.

For all our parish families, as we approach the end of the church’s year:
That we will learn to put our lives at God’s service, striving to live in his presence with a growing awareness and alertness that the Lord will return to call us Home.
Lord, in your mercy R: hear our prayer.

For the sick especially those living with constant pain or mental suffering, especially Norah Moran, that they will be given the grace to join their sufferings with those of Christ, and that the Lord will bring them relief and comfort.
Lord, in your mercy R: hear our prayer.

For the faithful departed especially Tommy Gaskell and Bill Clarkson that they will be welcomed into the fullness of joy and eternal peace and that their families will be comforted by their belief in the promise of Eternal Life.
Lord, in your mercy R: hear our prayer.

Now in silence we remember all who have asked for, or specially need, our prayers.

We join with Mary, the Queen of heaven as we say Hail Mary.
