Bidding Prayers

Bidding Prayers for Sunday 13 October
The 28th in Ordinary time
Saint Paul’s Parish

Priest: To God the Father who wishes that all be saved, let us now pray for our needs and
the needs of all the world.

Response: Lord, graciously hear us.

1. We pray for the perseverance and sanctification of all priests, religious and missionaries, may their lives proclaim God’s mercy to the entire world. Lord, hear us. R.

2. For all the faithful, may we always strive to live sacramental lives. We pray especially in thanksgiving for the canonisation of John Henry Newman. Lord, hear us. R.

3. We pray for the conversion of all who are away from Christ, may the Holy Spirit guide them towards the faith and the example of Christians be an inspiration. Lord, hear us. R.

4. For world leaders and for peace around the world, we pray especially for Syria and the Middle East.

5. Let us now present our own intentions in the next few moments of silence.

Priest: Eternal Father, you sent your Son as healer of our bodies and our souls, grant us
your grace to live our lives in praise and thanksgiving to you always. We as this through
Christ our Lord.
