|Lenten Prayer Tree|
‘Like a tree planted in the house of the Lord, I trust
Intentions can be left on our Lenten Prayer Tree and will be remembered in prayers and Masses throughout Lent. When you add your intention to the tree, pray also for others and their intentions.
We pray for all in need; may we, as God’s people, show care and mercy by responding to the needs of those who are less fortunate.
We pray for all who are sick; may the Lord continue to bless them and may they be comforted by the care and kindness of those who surround them.
Let us ask God for the great gift of peace for the peoples of Syria, and for all situations of conflict and violence in the world. May we ourselves be men and women of peace.
We pray for the people of this country; may all people work together to build a more equal and just society at home and abroad.
We pray for our emigrants; may the Lord keep them safe from all harm, and bless them with peace, laughter, wisdom, love and joy; and that we may be reunited in the fullness of love.
We pray for all who are preparing for baptism this Easter; may Lent be a time of enlightenment and purification for them, and for those who journey with them.
We pray for the Church and its leaders; that they may inspire all people to seek the face of God.
We pray for those who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith; that they may enjoy the heavenly banquet with the angels and saints in heaven.
Lord, during this Lenten season,
Today, Lord, I choose life,
Almighty and everlasting God,
