Education in Faith Sunday 2008: Prayers of the Faithful

27 January 2008
Priest
God our Father is mindful of all who need him, and does great things for love of them.
Let us not be afraid to ask him for all our needs.

Reader
Through the resurrection of your Son, the world is filled with light: – through the gift of your Spirit, may your light shine out in the Church.
(Pause)
Lord hear us

Grant that the world may be filled with the knowledge of your truth;
– help us to carry out all you have called us to do.
(Pause)
Lord hear us

We pray for wisdom for parents and educators, that they may hand on the faith to those in their care.
(Pause)
Lord hear us

For our children and for all who seek to know God:
that they may receive through us the good news of Christ
(Pause)
Lord hear us

We pray, God of hope, that you will continue to call women and men to serve your Church as sisters, brothers and priests.
(Pause)
Lord hear us

For ___________________________________________
whom we remember at this Mass and for all our beloved dead:
that they may come at last to heaven and be filled with wonder, awe and delight in the presence of God.
(Pause)
Lord hear us

Priest
Most holy God, may we recognise your power at work in Christ your Son and join the apostles and prophets in proclaiming your saving word.
We ask this through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
