Prayers of the Faithful

Twenty Eighth Sunday Ordinary Time – OCTOBER 14th, 2012

October 13th/14th    28th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Cel —– In the name of the Lord Jesus, the source and lover of life, we make our intentions to God our Father,

That we will learn to set aside distractions and unhelpful attachments and live out the Gospel values of love of God and love of neighbour, Lord hear us

That our community and society will not focus on material wealth alone but will recognise and support the deeper values of love and justice and the integrity of creation,  Lord hear us

In this week of the 50th anniversary of the commencement of Vatican 2, we pray that its wisdom and vision will help to renew our church, Lord hear us,

For all who are faced with redundancy and job loss, that they will find a pathway to a good future of new opportunities, Lord hear us

That people who are ill may find the care they need, promptly and with compassion,  Lord hear us

For all who have died, especially __________ who died recently and for _____________ and all whose anniversaries occur at this time; may they enjoy the eternal happiness of heaven, Lord hear us

Let us pray,

Lord God, in you we live and move and have our being. May we walk in the way of Jesus your Son, live by his truth, and spread his love wherever we may be. We ask this in his name, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayers of the Faithful from Gardiner Street Parish, Dublin.

  1. thanks for the ready made prayers of the faithful…and if possible can you have a daily prayers of the faithful? so that it could be easy for those people who are looking for the prayers for the mass..

    • We’re glad that the prayers are useful. That’s a good idea about daily prayer, but for now I’m afraid we are a bit short on resources in the parish (what’s new?!) and can only commit to updating the weekly reflections and Sunday prayers. But we hope to continue to develop online resources as much as possible, so maybe in the future. Thanks for your comment.

      • Prayers of the faithful online is very helpful and if you can also include some samples for those who are celebrating wedding anniversaries. Thank you so much.

  2. I am blessed by your reflections on the Gospel and use them in my Sunday Cuts routinely. We are blessed at St. Albert the Great Parish in Calgary, Alberta with two deeply spiritual and graced priests. I’m passing on to you the wordpress link for our associate pastor, Father Jerome Lavigne, in hopes that you might enjoy some of his homilies. Continue your good works and bless you.

  3. I’m so glad to find here a ready made prayer of the faithful for Sunday masses. It helps me a lot in my ministry in serving our school. May you continue to serve the people of God in this ministry. God bless you all!

  4. Thank for posting the weekly prayers of the faithful. As I prepare the weekly sunday mass readings and prayers of the faithful, for my parish (St James Church, Colombo, Sri Lanka) your posting helps me a lot. Once again – Thank you!
