Prayers Of The Faithful
Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ
16 June 2017 


PRIEST

Dear friends, today we thank and praise God for nourishing us with the bread of life and cup of salvation.  Gathered at the table of the Lord, let us open our hearts in prayer for the whole of God’s created world.

 

READER

  • We pray for all who died, were injured, lost loved ones and homes in the fire in London and we remember, with gratitude, all who helped in a multitude of ways. As we dare to say ‘never again’, may people’s safety and building regulations, be honoured and not sacrificed in the interest of profits.     

     (PAUSE)       Jesus, bread of life and hope for the world: Lord hear our prayer

 

  • We ask blessings on those who are Ministers of the Eucharist, when we gather as a community or when they take this special gift to fellow parishioners in aged care facilities or confined to their homes. 

     (PAUSE)    Jesus, bread of life and hope for the world: Lord hear our prayer

 

  • Refugee Week reminds us of the ever increasing number of human beings who are forced into this way of life.  May we have the generosity and the wisdom to look beyond politics and differences and genuinely seek ways to enable them to live in safety, peace and dignity.

     (PAUSE)    Jesus, bread of life and hope for the world: Lord hear our prayer

 

  • For Zara Davey baptised this weekend. Together with her family may she grow in faith within the community of the Church                                                                                      (PAUSE)    Jesus, bread of life and hope for the world: Lord hear our prayer

PRIEST


Bountiful God, of old you fed your people with manna in the desert, and in the fullness of time with the bread and wine sanctified by your Son.  May we who eat of his body and drink of his blood become one body in him.  We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

They abide in him and he abides in them"
