Prayers of the People: Advent 3C



Prayers of the People—Advent 3C

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Surely, it is God who saves us, therefore we joyfully pray to the Lord: “God our Salvation: Thank you.”

Though hindered by our sins and in need of your bountiful grace and mercy, you never leave us. You are ever in our midst. Renew your Church in love. 

I ask your thanksgivings, followed by

God our Salvation:
Thank you.

Make your deeds known among the people, O God. Save the lame; gather the outcast. May the exiles know home and all people know your peace.

Silence

God our Salvation:
Thank you.

May your springs of salvation renew the earth. Heal our planet and restore in us a sense of responsibility and gratitude.

Silence

God our Salvation:
Thank you.

Merciful God, in this month of great excess and consumerism, call the financial and business communities to act justly and generously.  May those without coats be clothed and those without food be fed.

Silence

God our Salvation:
Thank you.

O God, you have done great things.  And so with thankful hearts we pray to you for those burdened by shame, grief or weakness. Be for them a stronghold and a sure defense. 

I ask your petitions, followed by Silence

God our Salvation:
Thank you.

God our Salvation, gather us, with all those who have died, into your sacred heart. Grant us to sing your praises for all eternity.

Silence


God our Salvation:
Thank you.
