Prayers of the Faithful
Celebrant: Brothers and sisters, Jesus Christ gave us the Beatitudes as the way to a life of happiness. With humble hearts, let us offer these prayers to the Lord:
L. We pray for our parishioners, that we may avail of the opportunities to grow in faith and to participate in fellowship in our church community. We pray to the Lord.
L: We pray for our relatives and friends who have not yet been baptized, that their hearts may be touched by grace and therefore seek salvation in the name of Jesus. We pray to the Lord.
L: Today’s Mass is being offered for the family of David and Katai Chong. May the Lord grant them peace, happiness and good health. We pray to the Lord.
L: We pray for those whose names are in our Prayer Box, especially Liang Chenjing, Deng Lizhen, Pan Bohao, Angela Griffin, Wang Dacheng, Long Guorui, Zhang Qiang, Li Kuiying and Xu Taicheng. We pray to the Lord.
L: We pray for the souls of Purgatory, may our prayers aid them in their purification, so that they may sooner enter into the joys of heaven. We pray to the Lord.

Celebrant: Grant us, O Lord our God, that we may live in the way that Jesus taught us, and therefore have a blessed life on earth, and one day enter into the eternal joys of heaven. We ask this through Christ our Lord. AMEN.
