Prayerful Concerns of Our Parish Community – Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

Jun 5, 2023 | Prayers of the Faithful

We share these Prayers of the Faithful for Trinity Sunday (June 3-4, 2023) for you to use in your own reflections this week.

Let us now call upon our Father who made us and sustains our life, the Son who has shared his life with us and the Spirit who renews us and enables us to respond to Jesus’ invitation to follow him and be His hands and heart in our world. We pray:

That God will guide Christian churches, and individual Christians, in a journey toward unity, that our thoughts and language about our brothers and sisters in Christ express mutual respect and honor and that we seek ways to work with other Christians and all people of good will in making the world a better place. Let us pray to the Lord.

God, you reveal yourself to us as a God of relationships. In the book of Genesis your word says “it is not good for human beings to be alone.” Let us reflect on the relationships in our own lives, giving thanks for those that are healthy and good, and seeking healing in places where there has been pain or separation. Let us pray to the Lord.

This is a season of beginnings….weddings, commencements, promotions, moving to new places and new jobs. Bless the relationships we have made where we are and those that await some of us as we move to new places in our lives. Let us pray to the Lord.

God you are with us in hidden acts of kindness, in bridges built, strangers trusted, in the building of a new health center or shelter for the homeless, in diversity being honored and enjoyed, in our recognizing of your image in one another. Open our eyes and hearts that we may see your presence in these ways. Let us pray to the Lord.

You are also with us in times of selfishness and power-struggles, in exclusiveness and bigotry. God-with-us wanting to challenge, redirect and empower. Help us to recognize and embrace your challenges. Let us pray to the Lord.

God of life and promise, we now place in your love our deceased family members and friends. At this liturgy we especially entrust to you:

4:30 PM Priscilla C. Scala by Julie Ann Johnson

7:30 AM Berlin Castillo by Family

9:30 AM The People of the Parish both Living & Deceased

5:00 PM Joanne S. McHugh by Louie & Pandika

Let us pray to the Lord.

Here in this place, a place of celebration, struggle and safety, we desire to know your presence, hear your Word, sense your Spirit. And if in this place and at this table it will come to pass again, or perhaps for the very first time, that your Spirit will touch ours, then in your mercy turn us to face you in ourselves, our world, our neighbor and send us out from here, your companions on the way. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
