Prayer of the Faithful for Sunday January 11, 2015. The Baptism of the Lord.
- John the Baptist said, “I have baptized you with water; he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.” Let us welcome that Spirit into our lives.. We pray to the Lord.
- Isaiah writes, “I, the LORD, have called you for the victory of justice . . and set you as a covenant of the people, a light for the nations, to open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from confinement, and from the dungeon, those who live in darkness.” May we live up to this prophetic challenge. We pray to the Lord.
- Let us welcome all those who will be baptized and confirmed in our church this year. Let them bring us new energy and grace.. We pray to the Lord.
- For those suffering from lack of good shelter, warmth, clothing, and nourishing food during this winter season. Let us as Catholic-Christians address their needs. We pray to the Lord.
- and for those for whom this mass is offered [name them]. We pray to the Lord.
