Prayers of the Faithful
Celebrant: Brothers and sisters, in the Gospels, Jesus teaches us the urgency of repentance, such that we must always be prepared for the day of our judgment. In faith and trust in God, let us offer these prayers to the Lord:
L. We pray for our parishioners, that we may never ignore the plight of the poor and hungry, especially those right at our own doorsteps. 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: We pray for those whose names are in our Prayer Box, especially Guo Huici, Pan Bohao, Wang Dacheng, Long Guorui, Zhang Qiang, Xu Taicheng and Qiu Laihao. We pray to the Lord.
L: Today’s Mass is offered for Chiang Zhen. May the Lord grant his soul eternal rest. We pray to the Lord.
L: We pray for the souls of Purgatory and the recently departed: especially Chiang Mama, Carolyn Johnson and Atlas Wen. We pray to the Lord.
L: We pray for your personal intentions. May the Lord hear the prayers of our hearts and bring us closer to God. We pray to the Lord.
Celebrant: Lord our God, grant we pray, that we may seriously take on the task of proclaiming the Gospel through our daily thoughts, words and actions. We ask this through Christ our Lord. AMEN.
