Bidding Prayers

Bidding Prayers for the 5th Sunday of Lent

Now with confidence, we bring our petitions before our heavenly Father, who always hears the heartfelt prayers of his children.

Let us pray for our Holy Father, Pope Francis and our Archbishop Pierbattista, may the Holy Spirit assist them as they guide God’s people through these difficult times.

Lord hear us…

We pray for those who are suffering from worry, fear and anxiety; we ask that they may turn to Jesus and place their trust in the king of peace.

Lord hear us…

Let us pray for all the victims of war and violence, for all refugees, for the persecuted Christians and our missionaries who are with them.

Lord hear us…

We pray now in a special way for all the nurses and doctors who are giving themselves so selflessly to care for the sick and the dying.

Lord hear us…

We pray for all those who are grieving the loss of loved ones at this time, may Christ who is the life, grant them comfort as they look with hope towards the future resurrection.

Lord hear us…

Now in the silence of our hearts we present our own intentions, and unite them to the Holy sacrifice of the Mass.

(SILENCE)

Heavenly Father, out of the depths, your people call to you and we know that you always hear us, as we pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
