30Dec The Holy Family — Bidding Prayers

Introduction (by the Presider): God looks with love on all of creation, so we bring our prayers with confidence.

  1. For all the members of the Christian family, that they may have peace at this time of year (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  2. For the families of this community, that the Word made flesh may be at the centre of every home (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  3. For families where there is hurt or difficulty, that those who have suffered may find healing (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  4. For all who look to the future with fear, that Christ may be their light in the New Year and always (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us
  5. For those who died recently, and all who died during 2012, that the light of heaven may be theirs (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us
  6. For our own needs and for those in our prayers… (long pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.

Conclusion (by the Presider): God our Creator, your strength sustains your people all their days: hear our prayers and stay with us throughout the New year, we prayer, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
