Sunday 25th June 2017

The Lord is our refuge and strength: to God we pray:

For the People of God; that, as we recommence the Sundays of Ordinary Time, we may allow the Word of God to take root in our hearts.

For Pope Francis: that, celebrating the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul this week, he may be filled with the zeal of his illustrious forbears and protected by their powerful intercession.

For those persecuted for living the Gospel: that they may be comforted in their trials and rewarded for their faithfulness.

For those crushed by the weight of their sin and shame: that Christ may remove their burden with the power of his saving death and resurrection.

For tranquillity between people of varying faiths: that difference may never become an excuse for violence.

For those who govern and trade: that they be mindful of the beauty of honesty and their sacred responsibilities towards the poorest.

God our Father, ever-gracious, ever-forgiving, be pleased to hear our prayers and to grant them as you will. Through Christ our Lord.

Gracious Lord, hear our prayers and be pleased to grant them though Christ our Lord. AMEN
