INTERCESSIONS FOR THE FEAST OF THE HOLY TRINITY

PRAYERS FOR THE FEAST OF THE HOLY TRINITY

PRIEST: Gathered at the Lord’s Table and having professed our faith in the Holy Trinity, we unite ourselves to our Loving God as we humbly ask for what is needed in our lives.

READER: Let us pray for the Church; for Pope Francis, for all the Bishops and for Christian communities in every nation of the world. We pray that, the Church may be a visible sign of unity and hope in the way we support and encourage one another. Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

Let us pray for our nation and all the diverse peoples in it, may they help one another to live in peace, in unity and grow together in the love of our one God. Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

As we have received our faith from those who have gone before us, we pray that we will hand on to our young people, a love of the Holy Trinity and we ask God to help us to practice and proclaim that community of Love in our lives. Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

We pray for those called to go out to the nations to teach and proclaim our God as the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit. Grant them the Spirit of truth and strengthen them in the faith. Lord hear us. Lord graciously hear us.

In the Lord, a little is more than enough; our daily bread becomes a feast. We pray that we will recognise and give thanks for the wonderful gifts of life the Lord gives us day by day. Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

We pray for all those who fear for their lives, for the victims of violence and war, for those in poverty and for those weighed down by troubles and anxieties. We pray that we may reach out to others with hope and care. Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

Let us pray for all who are sick and those who are in hospital. May they be strengthened in their journey by sharing in the Eucharist and encouraged by our prayers and support. Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

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

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

PRIEST: Almighty and ever-living God you know our deepest needs and anxieties.
As we share in this Eucharist together open our hearts to understand your plan for us
and strengthen us to do your will.
We ask this
in the name of the Father, and of the Son and the Holy Spirit. AMEN
