BIDDING PRAYERS 30th October 2016
As we come to the end of the Church year, we thank God for all the blessings he has bestowed upon us; we ask him to hear our prayers now as we come to him in a spirit of peace, generosity and mercy.
We pray for the Pope and ask for God’s blessing on his cardinals, bishops and priests in their ministry to bring the Good News to all.
We pray for all those leaving The Jungle in Calais and pray that God will guide them to a safer place to live. We especially pray for the children and young people who find themselves alone and pray that God’s loving hands will protect them from danger.
We pray for all those fleeing from Mosul; that they can find shelter, safety and food and that before long they will be able to live in peace and stability.
We pray for all those affected by the recent earthquakes in Italy; that their homes and communities will be safe and they can soon resume their usual lives with confidence.
As the half term holiday finishes, we pray for all families, teachers and those who work in education and pray that they will return to their work refreshed and energised.
Eternal Father, look with kindness on the needs of the whole human family and bless us with your peace; through Christ our Lord, we ask you to hear our prayer now.
