OFFICIAL FAMILY PRAYER FOR WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES 2018

 

God, our father

Gentle and generous, welcoming to those in need,

Help us to live your forgiveness and peace.

Protect all families with your loving care,

Especiall for those for whom we now pray;

Increase our faith,

Strengthen our hope,

Keep us safe in your love,

Make us always grateful for the gift of life that we share.

This we ask, through Christ our Lord, Amen.

PRAYERS FOR THE DEAD & FUNERALS

Be good enough to send me a text message or call me if there is a death in your family circle or if you want me to pray for the deceased in the Churches in Drumlane.  It can easily happen that I might not hear of news like this and therefore there can be annoyance that could easily be avoided if the details was communicated to me by a member of the family circle.
