Sunday 26th February 2017 


Lord of the undivided heart, loving us because you are Love, today we come before you, humbly asking you to hear our prayers for our brothers and sisters in need.


• Inspired by the example of Pope Francis as he constantly challenges us to reach out to people in need of compassion, we pray that his words will not fall on deaf ears; that his call to become messengers of mercy and love will touch many hearts.

Lord, hear us

• In a week filled with tragic reports of avoidable famines and of migrant deaths at sea, we pray for the helpless victims of other people’s greed, that they might find security, peace and support in their suffering.

Lord, hear us

• We remember all those who are unemployed and struggling to support their families, that they might find meaningful work which offers them dignity, respect and the courage they need to face the future.

Lord, hear us

• We pray for families, that they might grow ever closer through the ups and downs of daily life and that they might help each other to face and overcome any difficulties which might cause them worry or pain.

Lord, hear us


Loving Lord, we ask you to hear our prayers, which we make in the name of your Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit of Love, who brings warmth to our lives. Amen.
