17th Sunday Year C

‘Lord, teach us to pray …’ – that the People of God will grow in prayer and openness to God, and find in deep prayer the inspiration for Mission, Mercy and Evangelisation
                                                   [READER]             LORD WE PRAY…
[Response]          May Love be alive among us

‘Search and you will find…’ – for all those who do not yet believe, yet search with integrity for the Truth to live by, for those who seek meaning in their lives and their world: may their search lead them to the Christ we know and love

[READER]             LORD WE PRAY…

‘Ask and it shall be given to you…’ – that the places of conflict and war will turn from violence to peace; that oppression and injustice will give way to freedom and justice; for our 67 million refugees world-wide, that will be welcomed and supported with bridges of compassion rather than walls of hostility

[READER]             LORD WE PRAY…

‘How much more will your Heavenly Father give you the Holy Spirit…’ for the renewal of our diocese in this Year of Prayer as a People of Prayer, a People of Mission, a People of Hope, that like Jesus we may be truly Good News to the Poor; that our young people might experience the gift of the Holy Spirit energising and transforming their lives

[READER]             LORD WE PRAY…

‘Knock and the door will be opened…’ that many hearts and homes will be opened to Christ and his Spirit of Love here in our own parish and City; that our ‘Borderlands Charity’ and our parish SVP group will help resource our service of the poor; that the Wild Goose Café and the One25 organisation will continue to serve lovingly and wisely the marginalised of our city

[READER]             LORD WE PRAY…

‘The Lord knows our every need…’ we pray for all who care for the unborn child, the elderly and those tempted to suicide; for all victims of Ebola and those caring for them:  we pray also for …
for those who have died recently in particular … and those killed by the Ebola Virus;
for all whose anniversaries are at this time, especially …. 

[READER]             LORD WE PRAY…

Mary, Woman of Prayer and Mission, pray with us for the young people of the world…
                                                                                      HAIL MARY…

Let us pray in a moment of silence…
