Prayers of the Faithful Priest: In Christ’s body broken for us and his blood poured
out for us, we receive the gift of God, who is undying Love. With thankful
hearts we pray: May the Eucharist give life to all who receive it; may it sustain
us on our journey and guide us in the wilderness. Lord, hear us. May communion with
Christ bind us together as his Body; may we look out for one another and see Christ
in each other. Lord, hear us. As we receive the bread of life, we pray for those
who are hungry in body or in spirit. May Christians be the bread of life for others.
Lord, hear us. We pray for the children who made their First Communion this year,
we ask God to bless them and to bless their families. Lord, hear us. We pray for
all who have died. May they know the love of Christ and be filled with the fullness
of God. Lord, hear us. Priest: As we make our prayers, we give thanks for the gift
of God to us in the Eucharist; we give thanks for all that this means to us and we
say, Glory be to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Exam Prayer Lord, I know you are with me and love me. Give me peace of mind as I prepare
for this time of study. Help me to focus on my books and notes. Keep me from all distractions
so that I will make the best use of this time that is available to me. Give me insight
that I might understand what I am studying, and help me to remember it when the time
comes. Above all, I thank you for the ability to be able to study and for the many
gifts and talents you have given me. Help me always to use them in such a way that
they honour you and do justice to myself. Amen
