Prayer of the Faithful
These prayers are the intentions we pray for during Mass.                                  
We believe that God responds to faith-filled prayer. So let us cry out with confidence to God with the needs of our world.
For the church throughout the world, that we may grow in our willingness to be healed of whatever in our lives blinds us to the following of Christ; For civic leaders and nations to work together to make the world a home of peace and justice for all people;
For our parish family, that we may never discourage anyone from calling out to Jesus by word or action; For all who are blinded by fear and prejudice, that God will enlighten their hearts and help them recognize the value and dignity of each person,
For all those who work in healthcare to continue to be blessed in the healing ministry they do; For all who help others grow in faith, especially parents, catechists, and spiritual directors, that God will bless their efforts,
For all who are cut off from community by illness or weakness that we will reach out to them and connect with them through visits and prayers; for those recommended to our prayers especially Madeline Vigilante; for those in the military; for the names and intentions in this Book of Remembrance,
For those who have died especially family and friends  who have passed recently.
God of compassion, hear the prayers we offer this day. Give sight to your faithful people, and enable us to follow your Son, Jesus Christ, who is Lord for ever and ever.  Amen.
