Bidding Prayers 24th May 2020
Continue with your Novena to the Holy Spirit, asking Him to continue to guide and bless the Church and its leaders.
For the Church. May She always be recognised as a sign and symbol of unity, holiness, and hope, gathering together one flock under one Shepherd.
For our world. May those who govern countries lead in a way which remembers everyone, especially those who are weakest
For our young people, growing up in an ever more complex and stressful world. Be close to them always, and may the love and good example of their families and friends, together with their guardian angel, help keep them safe from all harm and danger.
Let us pray also for harmony within our own families and parish community. May we learn to live together in peace and mutual respect.
Lift up into Your everlasting glory Ellie Docherty who died recently; and Dan Hilferty, Columba McPake, Margaret O’Hagan whose anniversaries we commemorate.
May the glory and the promise of this joyous time of year bring peace and happiness to you and those you hold most dear. And may Christ, Our Risen Saviour, always be there by your side to bless you most abundantly and be your loving guide. We ask this through Christ Our Risen Lord. Amen
With Love from St. Joseph’s Parish Cumbernauld
