23rd Sunday of Ordinary Time
September 6, 2020
Let us Sing in Glory to God
by whom we are redeemed
and receive adoption,
upon your beloved sons and daughters,
that those who believe in Christ
may receive true freedom
and an everlasting inheritance.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Prayers of the Faithful
Drawn together in faith, we bring our needs to God with confidence and hope.
For the Church, may the Lord graciously preserve and protect her as a sign of his Truth to the world, let us pray to the Lord.
For all nations, may their leaders be governed by the power of the Holy Spirit in love of and service to one another, let us pray to the Lord.
For those blinded by sin, may the compassionate mercy of God lead them to goodness and repentance, let us pray to the Lord.
For those who have died from the effects of the coronavirus, may they rest in the peace of God’s perfect love, let us pray to the Lord.
For all the prayers that we hold in the silence of our hearts, let us pray to the Lord.
God of love and truth, you lead us deeper into relationship with you through every prayer we offer. We ask that you hear the prayers we offer today, through Christ our Lord.
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done
on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Grant that your faithful, O Lord,
whom you nourish and endow with life
through the food of your Word
and heavenly Sacrament,
may so benefit
from your beloved Son’s great gifts
that we may merit an eternal share
in his life.
Who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
