10th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Bidding prayers

Introduction (by the presider): The Lord listens and has pity, the Lord comes to our help: so, my dear friends,  let us present our needs with confidence.

  1. That all people may believe in God, who raises the dead (short pause for silent prayer): Lord, hear us.
  2. That God may comfort parents whose children have been lost (short pause for silent prayer): Lord, hear us.
  3. That in these summer days, we may all have God’s protection (short pause for silent prayer): Lord, hear us.
  4. That our young people may have the help they need in their exams (short pause for silent prayer): Lord, hear us.
  5. That those who are sick may be healed (short pause for silent prayer): Lord, hear us.
  6. That people who find it hard to trust in God, may see his love in the beautiful world around them (short pause for silent prayer): Lord, hear us.


The presider prays for the dead, those who died during the week and those whose anniversaries occur (and the person/people for whom Mass is offered) ‘that God may raise their souls from death by his divine power ’ (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.


Conclusion (by the Presider): Lord our God, you restore us to life, you change our mourning into dancing: support in our time of trial and hear our prayers, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
