28th Sunday Ordinary Time — Bidding Prayers

Introduction (by the Presider)  The Lord shows pity to all who serve him, so we can ask for help and guidance, and present our needs:

  1. For all the baptised, that they may have the divine gifts of wisdom and prudence (pause for silent prayer). Lord, hear us.
  2. For those who have left everything to follow Christ, that the promised reward may keep them going in difficult times (pause for silent prayer). Lord, hear us
  3. For people who have been blessed with wealth, that they may never forget the poor (pause for silent prayer). Lord, hear us.
  4. For young people, that they may make the Christian ideals their own (pause for silent prayer). Lord, hear us.
  5. For those who have died (especially N & N), that the light of God’s glory may shine on them (pause for silent prayer). Lord, hear us.
  6. For our own needs, for which we now pray (long pause for silent prayer). Lord, hear us.

Conclusion ( by the Presider): Lord, your favour shines out upon us, you give success to the work of our hands: Help us according to our needs, we pray, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
