INTERCESSIONS FOR THE 4th SUNDAY OF ADVENT

PRIEST: Christ is coming, the day of the Lord brings salvation for all. In our Eucharist today filled with hope let us rejoice in God with us.

READER: As disciples of Christ we must always be present to God. May our hearts become a home for the Lord. Lord hear us. Response: Come Lord Jesus.

As we prepare for the Day of the Lord, may our hearts be filled with the love, integrity and joy of this Good News. Lord hear us. Response: Lord graciously hear us.

We pray for the worshippers of God everywhere, May we all be prepared to do his will and work together for justice and salvation in our world. Lord hear us. Response: Come Lord Jesus .

We pray for those, who because of conflict and violence, slavery and abuse, are in despair, may we respond to their needs with Compassion and Love. Lord hear us. Response: Come Lord Jesus.

We remember especially the sick, those in hospital and those who are housebound, those of our own families wherever they may be. May God grant them the blessings they need at this time. Lord hear us. Response: Come Lord Jesus.

Let us pray for those who have recently died… and for all our dead… and for all who mourn that they may be comforted. Lord hear us. Response: Come Lord Jesus.

Let us ask Mary the Mother of the Lord to pray with us: Hail Mary…

Now let us pray for a few moments in silence for our own needs and intentions.

PRIEST: Almighty and ever-living God
as we look forward in faith to the feast of our Lord’s birth,
grant that we may experience the happiness that our Saviour brings
and joyfully celebrate his coming.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN
