Prayer of the Faithful

7, Weekdays of Holy Week

Priest’s Introduction

In this time of the Lord’s Passion,
when Christ offered prayers and supplications to his Father
with loud cries and tears,
let us humbly beseech God,
that in answer to his Son’s reverent submission
he may in mercy hear our prayers also.


1. That the Church, the Bride of Christ,
may be more fully cleansed by his Blood
in this time of his Passion,
let us pray to the Lord.

2. That through the Blood of Christ’s Cross
all things in the world
may be brought to peace for the sake of salvation,
let us pray to the Lord.

3. That God may grant fortitude and patience
to all who through sickness or hardship
have a share in Christ’s Passion,
let us pray to the Lord.

4. That we may all be led through the Lord’s Passion and
Cross to the glory of his Resurrection,
let us pray to the Lord.

Priest’s Prayer

Be present, O Lord, to your people at prayer,
so that what they do not have the confidence or presumption to ask
they may obtain by the merits of your Son’s Passion.
Who lives and reigns for ever and ever.

R. Amen.
