in Ordinary Time
Almighty ever-living God,
direct our actions according to your good pleasure,
that in the name of your beloved Son
we may abound in good works.
Through 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 same trust the first Apostles had to follow Jesus, let us turn to God and bring him our needs.
For the Church throughout the world, may we, through God’s grace, continue to grow in the likeness of Christ, let us pray to the Lord.
For our nation’s leaders, especially as we welcome a new President and Vice-President, may the Holy Spirit inspire them in promoting justice for all, especially the marginalized, let us pray to the Lord.
For our family of faith, may God bless us and protect us in this new year, let us pray to the Lord.
For our beloved dead, may our merciful Savior welcome them to paradise, let us pray to the Lord.
For all our personal intentions we share at this time...., let us pray to the Lord.
Father of mercy and love, we turn to you with trust in your infinite goodness. We ask that you hear the prayers we bring you in the name of Jesus, 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.
Grant, we pray, almighty God, that, receiving the grace
by which you bring us
to new life,
we may always glory
in your gift.
Through Christ our Lord.
