Prayers of the faithful (21 March 2021)

Updated: Mar 21

Let us come before God our Father in faith and hope, asking him to listen to our needs and those of our suffering world


We pray for our Church: that the Pope, our bishops, priests and all of God’s people may be given strength to live their lives more fully


We pray for Her Majesty the Queen and the royal family thanking them for their loyal service


We pray for the NHS and all who help us so generously


For all Christians : that they may walk in the path of truth and goodness


That Christ may enlighten those in error, and guide those involved in wrongdoing


For Christians : that the observance of Lent may lead them to more authentic way of living the Christian life


For those for whom fasting is a permanent condition due to poverty and hunger, for those whose lives are disfigured by violence and hatred


For those who are going through the dark valley of suffering and find life too difficult to bear


We pray for those facing loss of any kind: may we listen to their pain, support them in their anxieties and offer them hope and love in their need


We pray for all who suffer and feel rejected, or who are wounded in body, mind or spirit: may the example of Christ’s acceptance of suffering help them to find comfort in their uncertainties and struggles


That the light of Christ may shine on the sick and on the lonely


We remember especially all those of our loved ones who have now gone to their rest. We pray to Mary the kindest comforter of all who mourn.


Father, in your compassion and love accept our prayers and grant us what we need, through Christ our Lord.
