Prayers of the Faithful
Priest:  God created us to experience the wonder of life and the joy of divine love.  With grateful hearts we pray:
May more and more people feel attracted to share the life and joy that God offers us in Christ.  
Lord, hear us.
We pray for all who are suffering loss or bereavement. We ask God to wipe away the tears from every cheek.  Lord, hear us.
We pray for the strength of God.  May there be nothing we cannot master.  May we be ready for anything anywhere.  Lord, hear us.
We ask the Lord our shepherd to revive all whose spirits are drooping and to comfort all who are struggling.  Lord, hear us.
We pray for all who have died.  In the Lord’s own house may they dwell for ever and ever.  Lord, hear us.
We praise you, O God; you guide us on the right path; you bless our lives with goodness and kindness, through Christ our Lord.
