Prayers of the Faithful

Sunday June 9th, 2024

Despite our failings, the Lord cares for us and is full of mercy and forgiveness.  With confidence then, we place our petitions before him. 

  • For the spread of the Gospel, and that we all might more fully embrace our mission of joyful evangelization, let us pray to the Lord.
  • For our Parish, here at St. William: that all our efforts may be according to the will of God, let us pray to the Lord.
  • For a deeper appreciation of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, let us pray to the Lord.
  • For a greater respect in our society for human life; for an end to the culture of violence in our country—and for a return to civility within our political discussions—let us pray to the Lord.
  • For an end to antisemitism, for peace in the Middle East, and for an end to ALL wars and conflicts, let us pray to the Lord.
  • For God’s blessing upon our parish campaign to fund repairs and improvements this summer, 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…

…let us pray to the Lord.

  • For those who have gone before us, marked with the sign of faith, remembering especially Joann Tamkevic and Cooper Drake, let us pray to the Lord.

Merciful God, ever gracious, look upon the people who need your help.  Grant all that is for our good.  We ask all this in the name of Jesus, who is Lord forever and ever.  Amen.
