Passion Sunday (A) Prayer of the Faithful
1. For the Church:
That, as the great Paschal feast approaches, our joy may increase and the witness of all the faithful to the Resurrection may be ever stronger.
2. For world leaders:
That they may resist the ways of violence and use only principles of peace to solve problems.
3. For our parish community:
May we empty ourselves of all earthly affections and, as followers of Christ, act always in a spirit of humility.
4. For all who are affected by the corona virus: those infected; those whose lives have been disturbed; and all who are working to care for the sick or to find a way of dealing with the pandemic.
5. For the sick, the bereaved and the lonely:
That our Christian service may bring them into the healing embrace
of their wounded Saviour.
6. For all our deceased relatives and friends and for all the dead:
May they now enjoy rest and peace in the kingdom of glory.
Lord, in your mercy Hear our prayer
