Bidding Prayers

Bidding Prayers for Corpus Christy Sunday
St. Paul’s Parish, Paphos

Priest: To the Father who every Sunday feeds us from his table, let us now elevate our prayers with confidence.

Response: Hear our prayer

  1. We pray for all ministerial priests as they feed God’s flock with the body and blood of Christ, may they share more intimately each time in the mysteries they celebrate. Father of mercy, R.
  2. We pray for all the faithful as we offer bread and wine, may we all learn to also offer ourselves until we are conformed to the image of Christ. Father of mercy. R.
  3. We pray for Christians who do not believe in the Most Holy Eucharist, that they may open their minds and hearts to the apostle’s teaching of the Lord’s real presence in the Blessed Sacrament. Father of mercy, R.
  4. We pray for the poor and all who help to feed them, may we all learn to care for each other as brothers and sisters. Father of mercy, R.
  5. Let us now present our own intentions in the silence of our hearts.

Priest: Eternal Father, we thank you for the Sacrifice of your Son at each Holy Mass. As He becomes for us the Bread of life, may we also grow in faith and gratefulness for this greatest of gifts. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
