12th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Bidding Prayers

Introduction (by the Presider): The love of the Lord is better than life, so we bring our needs into the divine presence, trustfully.

  1. For the Bishop of Rome, Pope Francis, and for all the other bishops (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  2. For all the baptised children of God, that they may be united (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  3. For an end to distinctions between people, that all may be equal in Christ (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  4. For peace in our world, with justice (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  5. For those who are sick, in body, mind or spirit (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  6. For those who mourn because the one they love has died (pause for quiet 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 eternal salvation in Christ may be theirs’ (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.

Conclusion (by the Presider): Lord our God, you have been our help, in the shadow of your wings we rejoice: hear the prayer we make, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
