Prayer of the Faithful

6. Lent II

Priest’s Introduction

As the Solemnity of Easter approaches, dear friends,
let our prayer to the Lord be all the more insistent,
that all of us, and the whole multitude of the baptized,
together with the entire world,
may come to share more abundantly in this sacred mystery.


1. That God may be pleased to increase faith and understanding
in the catechumens who are to be initiated by Holy Baptism
in the coming Paschal Solemnity,
let us pray to the Lord.

2. That peoples in need may find help
and that peace and security may be firmly established everywhere,
let us pray to the Lord.

3. That all who are afflicted or suffering temptation
may be strengthened by his grace,
let us pray to the Lord.

4. That all of us may learn to distribute the fruits of self-denial
for the good of those in need,
let us pray to the Lord.

Priest’s Prayer

Have mercy, O Lord, on the prayers of your Church
and turn with compassion to the hearts that bow before you,
that those you make sharers in the divine mystery
may never be left without your assistance.
Through Christ our Lord.

R. Amen.
