28Apr Fifth Sunday of Easter — Bidding Prayers

Introduction (by the presider): With confidence, let us bring our needs before our great and compassionate God.

  1. For missionaries, that like Paul and Barnabas they may inspire new believers (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  2. For all of us, that we may encourage each other (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  3. For those who feel depressed, that their friends may support them (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  4. For better weather, that grass may grow and warmer days may come (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  5. For farmers and all who depend on the land, that they may survive these hard times (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.
  6. For all who are sick in body and soul, that God may bring them comfort (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.

 

The presider prays for the dead, those who died during the week and those whose anniversaries occur, ‘that they may take their place in the new Jerusalem, where mourning and sadness is no more’ (pause for quiet prayer). Lord, hear us.

Conclusion (by the Presider): Great and loving God, you are compassionate to all your creatures: help us according to your will, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
