2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time – Bidding Prayers

Introduction (by the Presider): Let us raise our prayers to God, who works wonders among all the peoples.

  1. For all who follow Christ, that they may do what he asks of them (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  2. For married couples, that they may show God’s love to the world (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  3. For young people preparing to celebrate marriage, that the Lord’s presence at their wedding may bring them joy (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us
  4. For people whose marriages are in difficulty, that they may find the help they need (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us
  5. For single people, young and old, that their  unique contribution to their community may be valued (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  6. For migrants and refugees, and all who are far from their home place, that Christians may always show kindness to strangers (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.


The Presider prays for the dead: ‘that the glory of the Lord may shine on them’ (pause for quiet prayer): Lord, hear us.


Conclusion (by the Presider): Loving God, we proclaim to the nations: ‘God is king!’: let your power be seen as you answer the prayers we make, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
