Prayer of the Faithful

The Prayer of the Faithful.

Sunday 9th May 2021

Sixth Sunday of Easter


As one body in Christ, we now turn to the Father with our prayers, for our own needs and for the needs of all God’s people:

For Pope Francis, that his ministry will be blessed by God and hallmarked with courage, compassion and truth.

For our world, that God will inspire world leaders with new ways to right injustice and establish peace.

For those who have lain down their lives for the sake of the gospel that, imitating Christ in his suffering, they may also share his glory.

For ourselves, that we may encounter Christ in this Eucharist and reflect his love to all those we meet today.

For the sick, the housebound, the lonely and the bereaved, that they will be comforted by the knowledge of Christ’s unconditional love for them.

God our Father, Send your Spirit of truth into our hearts that we may always reject what is false, live by the commands of Christ, and be true to the love you have shown us.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
