Parish Prayer Ministry – December 2018
Tuesday, November 27th 2018

‘A praying parish is a growing parish ; a growing parish is a praying parish .‘ Please join us in praying for the following intentions this month.

 We pray for our country that the Brexit agreement may work to the advantage of people on these islands; and that all politicians will endeavour to preserve economic stability, peace and harmony.

May all families use Advent to prepare by prayer, Mass and the Sacrament of Confession to celebrate the real meaning of Christmas.  Help us to be patient, kind and thoughtful to one another over the Christmas season.

We pray for those for whom the dark winter days are long and lonely; for those who have been bereaved or separated this year; for migrants and those who have become homeless or lost their jobs; for  the sick and those suffering from depression; for those finding it hard to make ends meet; that they may be aware that the local community is there to support them.

We pray that Jesus, the Prince of Peace may hear our prayers for those who, because of war, disaster and persecution, cannot celebrate the birth of Christ this year.

With Pope Francis we pray that the Holy Spirit will inspire those involved in evangelisation to speak with wisdom and understanding in language accessible to the conditions of our time.

Thank You for hearing our prayers. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary , Gloria.
