4th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Bidding Prayers

Introduction (by the presider): God is our hope, our salvation, so we bring forward all our needs:

  1. For the Church and all who are part of it — that we may love each other more and more (pause for quiet prayer) Lord, hear us.
  2. For those called to be prophets — that they may speak the truth, no matter how unpopular it makes them (pause for quiet prayer)  Lord, hear us.
  3. For people of all religions and none — that they may work for justice and peace (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  4. For ourselves as we continue on the journey of life, that we may help each other along the road (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us
  5. For older people — that they may be cherished for their wisdom (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  6. For those whose throats are being blessed these days — that they may be spared from illness (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.


The Presider prays for the dead: ‘that they may know perfect love in heaven’ (pause for quiet prayer): Lord, hear us.


Conclusion (by the Presider): Lord our God, you are a rock where we can take refuge: hear our prayers and grant us your sustaining grace, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
