Prayers of the Faithful

Second Sunday of Lent
February 24, 2024

As sons and daughters of God, let us come with confidence to place our petitions before our Father.

  • That during this Lent the Lord may help us embrace the vision of seeing ourselves growing in holiness, to become a joyful band of missionary disciples. 
  • For God’s blessing upon our nation, for our government leaders, and for a return to civility in our political discussions, let us pray to the Lord. 
  • For the courage to act in Faith, with trust in God, especially in the difficult times of our lives, let us pray to the Lord.
  • For a deeper appreciation of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, and that those Catholics who have fallen away from the full practice of their faith may be drawn back to the Eucharist this Lent, let us pray to the Lord. 
  • For an increase in vocations to the priesthood, let us pray to the Lord.
  • We’ll take a moment in silent prayer now for the intentions of the persons around us let us pray to the Lord.
  • For all the sick, and for those who care for them, remembering especially…
  • Cindy Uglow Lisa Geoffrey                                         Christopher Rowles
  • Kathleen Brang Nancy Buchanan                                         Ralph Carpenter
  • Kimberly Clancy
      • …let us pray to the Lord.
  • For those who have died, that the mercy of God may embrace them, remembering especially Karla LaForge, Vita Ancona, Patricia Whalen-Merics, James Folden, and Donald Childers, let us pray to the Lord.

God, ever faithful to your promises, you call each of us to listen to the voice of your Son, and to respond in loving obedience.  Help us to be trusting and faithful like Abraham.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
