Solemnity of Christ the King – Bidding Prayers

Introduction (by the presider): Let us bring our prayers to the Lord, the great king.

  1. For all who follow Christ, that they may work to make the kingdom of God a reality (pause for silent prayer). Lord, hear us.
  2. For those who lead nations, that people in positions of power may always seek truth and justice (pause for silent prayer). Lord, hear us.
  3. For the people of all the countries on earth, that they may work together for an end to hunger and want (pause for silent prayer). Lord, hear us.
  4. For ourselves, that our lives may show that Christ rules our hearts (pause for silent prayer). Lord, hear us.
  5. For the sick and sorrowful, that they may experience God’s healing (pause for silent prayer). Lord, hear us.
  6. For all our dead, that they may share the glory of Christ (pause for silent prayer). Lord, hear us.

Conclusion (by the presider): O God, you rule your people with love and compassion: listen to our prayers and give us the help we need, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
