BIDDING PRAYERS for Sunday Mass on New Year’s Day

Introduction (by the Presider) God graciously blesses all of humanity, so we can bring forward our needs with confidence:

  1. That the world may have peace in 2023 (pause for a moment). Lord, hear us
  2. That God may be close to all who suffer (pause for a moment). Lord, hear us.
  3. That the new year may find us firm in faith (pause for a moment). Lord hear us.
  4. That our families may be places of forgiveness (pause for a moment). Lord hear us
  5. That people who are sick may get better (pause for a moment). Lord hear us.
  6. That mothers of all ages may be blessed by the Mother of God (pause for a moment). Lord hear us.

The presider prays for the dead: That perpetual light may shine on all our dead, especially our late Holy Father Pope Benedict amd all those taken from us in the last twelve months — whom we remember now… (pause for quiet prayer)  Lord, hear us.

Conclusion (by the Presider) Gracious God, you bless your people with peace and justice: accept our prayers and give us your help, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
