Prayers of the faithful

Priest: With confidence in the Father’s love we bring before him our needs and the needs of the whole church.

We pray that the leaders of the church may be blessed with wisdom and courage to remain faithful to Christ, the living bread come down from heaven.  Lord, hear us.

That we may never fail to share our earthly bread with those in need and so become like the self-giving Christ.  Lord, hear us.

We pray that by sharing in this Eucharistic banquet we may deepen our love for one another and become a more caring and inclusive community.  Lord, hear us.

Strengthen with your body and blood all those who are sick, lonely and anxious.  Lord, hear us.

For those who have died recently.  May they share in the Eucharistic banquet which they believed in while on earth.  

Lord, hear us.

Lord Jesus, you have given us your flesh to eat and your blood to drink as nourishment on our pilgrim journey.  

May we come to celebrate the Eucharist with renewed faith so as to have the strength and determination to do your will in all things.  We make our prayer through Christ, our Lord.  Amen.
