Intercessions June 10, 2018

INTERCESSIONS. TENTH SUNDAY in ORDINARY TIME [B]. June 10th., 2018.

Priest: Let us pray for the needs of the Church and the world through Jesus Christ, ever faithful in prayer to his Father, the source of all goodness, truth and beauty.

Reader: For our Christian life, that we may seek to transform the world to the Gospel, rather than the Gospel to the world, let us pray to the Lord [pause]:
Lord, in your mercy: Hear our prayer.

For those who are pushed aside because they do not conform to what is perceived as normal, that we may be open to finding truth in unexpected places and people, let us pray to the Lord [pause]:
Lord, in your mercy: Hear our prayer.

For those who suffer in war, especially the people of Syria, that the angel of peace may come to all places devastated by the devil of violence, let us pray to the Lord [pause]:
Lord, in your mercy: Hear our prayer.

For all families, that family members may listen to each other and in so doing may be disciples of the Lord, let us pray to the Lord [pause]:
Lord, in your mercy: Hear our prayer.

Let us seek the prayers of Mary, especially for all those who are sitting exams:

TO OUR LADY
OF PERPETUAL HELP
Mother of Perpetual Help, blessed and favoured by God,
you became not only the Mother of the Redeemer, but Mother of the redeemed as well.
We come to you today as your loving children. Watch over us and take care of us.
As you held the child Jesus in your loving arms, so take us in your arms.
Be a mother ready at every moment to help us.
Intercede for us, dear Mother, to obtain pardon for our sins, love for your Son, perseverance to the end,
and the grace always to call upon you, Amen.

Let us now pray in silence for our own intentions [silence]:

Priest: Heavenly Father, may your Holy Spirit guide our prayer, that we may be your good servants through desiring what you command, rather than demanding what we desire;
this we ask through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
