PRAYERS OF THE FAITHFUL

SUNDAY, APRIL 22, 2018

  1. In today’s gospel Jesus reminds us that He is the Good Shepherd who cares for us and that He is the gate through which we can gain entry to eternal life. We pray now for the strength and perseverence to live by His commandments and earn the rewards promised by our Saviour.

We pray to the Lord              R. Lord hear our prayer

  1. Jesus tells the apostles “ There are other sheep I have that are not of this fold and these I have to lead as well, so that they too will listen to my voice”. We pray for a church that is inclusive and a welcoming home for all those it has wrongfully alienated in the past.

  1. We pray for all those in our church, men and women, ordained and lay, who have been called to the role of shepherd, that they may follow closely the example of Christ and bear witness to His goodness.

  1. We pray for all children who at this time are making their First Holy Communion, that this wonderful occasion will be the beginning of a lifelong loving relationship with Jesus Christ who came into this world to show us the true way to eternal salvation.

  1. We pray for the Irish people as they debate the Eight Amendment of our Constitution that, in their deliberations, they be guided by the wisdom of the Spirit and respect for God’s gift of human life.

We pray to the Lord              R. Lord hear our prayer

 

  1. We bow our heads and remember in silence our own personal intentions and the intentions of those who have asked for our prayers.

 

We pray to the Lord              R. Lord hear our prayer
