Let us prepare a way for the Lord during the last two weeks of Advent.
Our prayer response is, “Lord, graciously hear us.”
- We pray that Pope Francis, who will celebrate his 80th birthday next Saturday, will be kept safe from the hands of his enemies. Lord, hear us.
- We pray that those who suffer persecution or discrimination because of their faith in Jesus may be strengthened in their courage. Lord, hear us.
- We pray that the victims of war and persecution in places like South Sudan, Nigeria, Syria and Iraq, may soon be free of their suffering. Lord, hear us.
- We pray that the Lord will come and save those who have died recently especially, Sr. Helena Logue, Pius Michael Baines and Margaret Robertson Gibson. Lord, hear us.
- Let us pray to Our Lady of Paisley for Bishop Keenan. Hail Mary……
Almighty God, give us true joy and peace as we welcome into our hearts your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns for ever and ever. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
