INTERCESSIONS FOR THE 16th SUNDAY OF THE YEAR A

PRIEST: The Scriptures teach us that God is full of Love to all who call.. Let us not be afraid to ask for what we need today.

READER: Let us pray for the Ministers of the Church, may they be true servants of the Lord. May they sow the good seed of God's word. And may that seed grow to fruition in us. Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

God's spirit is always praying for us. May we have the will to work for unity, justice and peace. Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

Let us pray for the victims of violence. We pray for comfort for the bereaved and repentance for those responsible. May they be granted the peace only Christ can give. Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

Let us pray for Missionaries who face opposition and indifference to God's message of life. May they be strengthened in their faith and courage.

Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

As we prepare for this Eucharist, we pray for all who cannot take part in it today for whatever reason. May we be inspired to reach out with true hospitality. Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

Let us pray for all who bear the Cross of ill-health and long term sickness. May they be strengthened in their journey; encouraged by our prayers and support. Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

Now let us pray for a few moments in silence for our own needs and intentions.

Let us ask Mary the Mother of the Lord to pray with us as we say: Hail Mary…

PRIEST: Almighty and ever-living God we thank you for hearing and answering our prayers. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN
