Bidding Prayers August 25th 2019
Twenty-First Sunday of the Year

For the Church….
That we, the Church may welcome those from near and far into the community of God’s holy people.

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

For the world….
For peace and unity among and within nations and that the discipline of dialogue and negotiation will yield the peaceful fruit of righteousness.

For those in need….
For those whom society ridicules or excludes, may they be welcomed by the disciples of Jesus, who promised that the last would be first.

For our diocese, and our own parish families….
That we who eat and drink with the Lord and who are taught by God’s word, may the God of surprises help us to be open his prompting.

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 hospices. We pray also for those who have gone before us in faith especially and all whose anniversaries occur at this time…..

For our own needs, we pray in the silence of our hearts, remembering the prayers played in out book of intercessions and on the parish prayer line.

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