THE HOLY MOTHER OF GOD
who through the fruitful virginity of Blessed Mary bestowed on the human race
the grace of eternal salvation,
grant, we pray,
that we may experience the intercession of her, through whom we were found worthy
to receive the author of life,
our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Let us Sing in Glory to God
Prayers of the Faithful
With the faith and trust modeled by Mary, the Mother of God, let us offer our prayers to God this day.
For the Holy Father, may God bless him with a year of good health as he leads the Church in wisdom and love, let us pray to the Lord.
For all who lack hope, may the promise of the Lord’s faithfulness bring them consolation and joy, let us pray to the Lord.
For our faith community, may Christ, who came in flesh to save us, be born anew in our hearts, let us pray to the Lord.
For those who have died in faith, may they soon rejoice in God’s presence, glorifying and praising him for all eternity, let us pray to the Lord.
For all our personal intentions we share at this time...., let us pray to the Lord.
Heavenly Father, in your wisdom, please hear and answer our prayers this day. We ask through Jesus Christ, your Son. Amen.
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.
We have received
this heavenly gift of your love,
grant, we pray,
that it may lead us to eternal life,
for we rejoice to proclaim
the blessed ever-Virgin Mary Mother of your Son
Mother of the Church.
Through Christ our Lord.
