Bidding Prayers 14/15th September 2019

Please take the ‘Prayer for Creation’ card from the front of your hymn book. Let us pray together: “Whatever befalls the earth ...”

We pray for all of our politicians in these divisive and uncertain times. We pray that, through the power of the Holy Spirit, disagreements may cease and that together they will find a way forward for the good of all.
Lord hear us ...

We pray for Sr. Treasa and all those who are helping people to pray more personally. May we learn to find God in all things.
Lord hear us ...

We pray for all those young people starting university shortly. Guide them as they leave home and enter a more adult world.
Lord hear us….

We pray for ourselves on this Home Mission weekend. Remind us to be like the shepherd who searches for his lost sheep and the woman who sweeps the house looking for her lost coin. 
Lord hear us ...

We pause for a moment’s silent prayer.

We ask Our lady to pray with us as we say Hail Mary ...
