29th SUNDAY YEAR C – WORLD MISSION SUNDAY

That the People of God everywhere will be steadfast in prayer and Mission, holding up the weary arms of believers until Justice is truly done for the oppressed and vulnerable of the world   

[READER]         LORD WE ASK…
[Response]      Teach us to pray, teach us to serve

For all who administer justice: judges, magistrates, solicitors; that they might be guided by right judgement and real compassion for the poor, so that the impoverished might know true justice; for all involved in the Home Office and Immigration Tribunals that those seeking asylum will truly be heard and safety be granted: we pray especially Ivan in Detention Centre and for the thousands of unaccompanied child refugees in Europe

[READER]         LORD WE ASK…

For our government and all Members of Parliament that they be guided by the wisdom of the Spirit and the need for the Common Good as they make  far-reaching decisions about the future development of our nation in the current Brexit turmoil

[READER]         LORD WE ASK…

For peace in our conflict-torn world,especially in Kurdish Syria and the Yemen, for peace in turmoil-ridden lives, for peace in disturbed minds and broken relationships, for courageous peace-makers everywhere

[READER]         LORD WE ASK…

For all contemplative communities as their prayer in the heart of the Church supports world-wide mission and holds up our weary hands: that the Body of Christ might continue faithfully to proclaim the Good News to the Poor and heal the wounds of the world

[READER]         LORD WE ASK…

That true justice may come for all who feel oppressed by the Church and its condemnations of diverse sexual identities and orientations, that these sisters and brothers of ours will come to know the fulness of the Freedom of the beloved Children of God 

                                                          [READER]         LORD WE ASK…

We pray for all who bear the hardships of illness and depression, and for all who care for them; we pray especially for all who have wounded in body and mind by hate crime, especially members of the LBGT+ community;
for those who have died recently, especially Fr Michael Saunders, Fr Michael Davies, and all who have died the victims of injustice and war
and for all whose anniversaries are at this time:

[READER]         LORD WE ASK…

  Mary, Woman of Prayer, Seat of Wisdom and Prophet of Justice, pray with us and for us…
                                                             HAIL MARY…

Let us pray in a moment of silence…
