Universal Prayer or Prayer of the Faithful, Ordinary Time 2013, Week 19.

To live life as Jesus taught and to be prepared for His return, we offer these petitions:

1. For the Church as the Body of Christ: to be the Lamp that lights the path to Truth. For Jesus’ disciples to seek Him as the only Light for all dimensions of living. We pray.

2. May your kindness, O Lord, be upon all people of the world. May each of us respond to Your kindness by reverencing life as Your sacred Gift. For peace throughout the world, in our families and in our hearts. We pray.

3. For our parish and all Christians to be firmly grounded in the Faith of Jesus Christ. For docile receptivity to Jesus’ Word and courage to act as His obedient disciples. We pray.

4. For vigilance to live life safely and free from sin. To satisfy the needs of people experiencing all forms of poverty. 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.

Almighty and ever-living God,
Your Spirit made us Your children
confident to call You Father.
Increase Your Spirit with us and
bring us to our promised inheritance.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
Who lives and reigns with You and the
Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever.
