Universal Prayer or Prayer of the Faithful, Ordinary Time 2013, Week 18.

The Word of God leads us to offer these prayers in the Spirit to our Loving Father.

1. For the Church, the Body of Christ, “to guard against all greed.” That disciples of Jesus seek to be rich in only “what matters to God.” We pray …

2. For citizens of the world to put to death all ‘immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, lying and the greed that is idolatry.’ Let freedom from these addictions enable generous and loving service to all people in need. We pray …

3. For our parish and all Christians families to welcome the Word of God and become communities formed with docile hearts to do only Our Father’s will. We pray …

4. For all preparing to begin another year of learning. May all reap a bounteous harvest of Truth that serves the needs of all particularly those who have no opportunities for school. We pray …

5. For all the sick (especially …) [PAUSE]
May all who have died (especially …) live eternally with You: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We pray …

Father of all goodness,
be close to us and
hear the prayers of all who praise You.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
Who lives and reigns with You
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever.
