Prayers of the Faithful

Recalling the faith of the Canaanite woman in today’s Gospel, we lift our hearts to the Father with assurance that our prayers will be heard.​

  • For the Church, may the grace and mercy of the Holy Spirit continue to strengthen her in faith and unity. We pray:  LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER.

  • For public officials, may God work in and through them as they carry out their duties. We pray:  LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER.
  • For all who are recovering from natural disasters, violence, or other losses: that God will ease their pain, bring healing to their wounds, fill their hearts with hope, and give them peace.  We pray:  LORD HEAR OUR PRAYER.

  • For those who have died, may they experience the mercy of God and rest in his eternal peace. We pray:  LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER.

  • For the intentions in our hearts...., let us pray to the Lord.

Father of mercy and love, you have extended your grace to all who call upon your name. Hear our prayers offered to you in faith, we ask through your Son, 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.
