29th Sunday in Ordinary Time

October 15-16, 2016


Presider:  As Moses prayed,… as Timothy urges us to be persistent,… as Jesus implores us to pray without becoming weary,… let us pray for a better world.

For the Church. May all who believe in Christ persevere in their life of prayer, especially in time or war and religious persecution. We pray to the Lord…

For leaders of nations. May they work to find peaceful solutions to problems they face within and outside their borders. We pray to the Lord…

For the poor, the hungry, the lonely, and all who have been abused or abandoned. We pray to the Lord…

For good weather, abundant fruits of the earth, and safety for farmers. We pray to the Lord…

As we observe “Respect Life Month,” we pray for wisdom and understanding…, for compassion for all victims of poverty and violence…, for dedication to the continued protection of human life.  We pray to the Lord…

For our parish family. May we rejoice in our brothers and sisters who hold us up when we get tired, support us through difficult times, and share their faith with us. We pray to the Lord…

For those living with pain and illness. May they experience the renewing and comforting touch of God. We pray to the Lord…

For those who died as witnesses for the faith, and for all who are mourning the loss of a loved one. We pray to the Lord…

For the prayers we hold in the quiet of our hearts.  (pause)  We pray to the Lord…

Presider:  Good and gracious God, hear the prayers of your people this day.  Satisfy the longing of our hearts, be the object of our desire, and bless us with the knowledge of your lasting love for us.  We pray in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
