GENERAL INTERCESSIONS / 4th SUNDAY IN LENT
March 13-14, 2021 (if no sung response add: “Let Us Pray to the Lord”)
Healing God, help us to bring to You our neediness and our
weakness. Inspire us to live Your truth, so that we can come
into, and live in, Your healing light .
Loving God, move us to battle the sin of racism in our midst
by speaking out and taking action when we see racism in any
form, from micro-aggressions to systemic oppression.
Healing God, we pray for all who have suffered loss of
human contact, loss of income, loss of housing, and loss of
education during this year of Covid 19.
Loving God, as we celebrate the Feast of St. Joseph, we pray
that government leaders will enact policies to care for and
protect unaccompanied children who are entering our
country, just as St. Joseph protected his foster son, Jesus.
Merciful God, we pray for all who have died, especially those
taken by Covid 19 this past year, that they find everlasting
comfort and peace in You.
