People: Let us pray that we, like Mary, hear God’s word and respond in obedient faith to the coming of Christ.
Leader: Let us pray for the Church throughout the world; in our own diocese, for the parish of St. John the Baptist, Richmond; for the Diocesan Faith, Worship and Ministry Commission; in our companion Diocese of Pelotas, we remember the Pastoral Alternative Medicine and Food Security Program outreach ministries. For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest and for all the clergy and people.
People: Let us pray for the church, that every baptized member may manifest Christ in the world.
Leader: Let us pray for the leaders of government in every nation, that they may have wisdom to choose what serves the common good.
People: Let us pray for all who are in need, remembering all who are sick, the elderly, those who are alone, and all who minister to them.
Leader: Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence), that we all may be strengthened by the presence of Christ as the sign of God’s love.
People: Let us pray for those with whom we share our daily lives, our families, friends and neighbours, and those with whom we work and play, that we may all be strengthened and sustained by God’s presence with us.
Leader: We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence), that they may rest in peace.
People: May we wait in hope for the promise of resurrection with them.
