Prayers of the faithful (7 February 2021)

Real suffering touches us all at some time. Jesus’ response to suffering was one of compassion. The sick came to him for healing. Let us bring our petitions before him with humility and confidence.


For Christians: that they may bear suffering in a way that brings hope and courage to others.


For all who care for the sick, whether at home, or in a nursing home or in hospital. We remember particularly NHS workers.


That we may be sensitive to the sufferings of those around us and ensure that they do not have to carry their cross alone.


For all who hold public office: that God may bless them with the gifts of wisdom and integrity.


For those who suffer from any form of addiction : that they may seek help with their problems.


For those who are suffering from mental illness, and for those who care for them.


For all who find life too difficult to bear : that they may seek God through prayer and the sacraments.


For all our parishioners : that we may not be afraid to acknowledge our weaknesses or too proud to ask for help.


For those of our loved ones who have died : that they may rest in the peace of the Lord.


For our own special needs.


God our Father, help us to learn from your son, who shows us your compassion in the face of human suffering, and how to combine action and prayer. We ask this through Christ our Lord AMEN
