Bidding Prayers March 18th 2018
Fifth Sunday of Lent

The response to the intercessions is: Lord, hear our prayer.

For the church….
That the church may scatter earth’s darkness with the light of Christ by preaching the word and practicing what we preach.

After each of the intercessions there will be pause for silent prayer; the priest will then say: Let us pray to the Lord.

For the world….
That God who so loved the world that he gave his only Son, may banish deeds of darkness from our society by the light of truth.

For the grace of repentance….
That through penance and reconciliation our community may be raised from the grave and filled with God’s spirit.

For our diocese, our own parish family and the Christian community in Seaford….
That our Lenten observance may fill us with light bring forth all that is right and good and true.

For those members of our parish family who are unwell, and those not able to be with us today…..
We pray for those who are unwell or housebound, in nursing homes and the hospitals. We pray for those who have gone before us in faith, especially those whose anniversaries occur at this time.

We now pray for our own particular needs, remembering also the prayers placed in our book of intercessions and on the parish prayer line.

We now seek the intercession of Our Blessed Lady…… Hail Mary….
