Prayers of the Faithful

Let us pray to the Lord,
who is our refuge and stronghold.

For the health and well-being of our nation,
that all who are fearful and anxious
may be at peace and free from worry:
Lord, hear us,
Lord, graciously hear us.

For the isolated and housebound,
that we may be alert to their needs,
and care for them in their vulnerability:
Lord, hear us,
Lord, graciously hear us.

For our homes and families,
our schools and young people,
and all in any kind of need or distress:
Lord, hear us,
Lord, graciously hear us.

For a blessing on our local community,
that our neighbourhoods may be places of trust and friendship,
where all are known and cared for:

Lord, hear us,
Lord, graciously hear us.

We pray for our church for all those who have died this past week due to the Coronavirus, we pray especially the priests and all the lay people the doctors and nurses who have given their lives for others this week.

Lord, hear us,
Lord, graciously hear us.

We turn to our Blessed Mother as make our act of entrustment to you this week we place England into your hands ask for your intersession as say …….Hail Mary

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love.

We make these and all our prayers through Christ Our Lord.
