Parish Prayer Intentions and Petitions

Prayers of Intercession – Parish of the Nativity of the Lord

3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time (Cycle C)

23rd January 2022

We pray for Pope Francis and all bishops and priests. May they always teach the Truth and so satisfy the spiritual hunger of all and help to build the Kingdom of God here on Earth.

Lord, in your mercy.     R. Hear our prayer.

We pray for our political leaders: may they learn compromise and respect while searching for a way out of our present problems.

Lord, in your mercy.     R. Hear our prayer.

We pray that we may welcome the Word of God into our deepest selves, to enlighten the darkness of our hearts, and teach us to live as daughters and sons of God.

Lord, in your mercy.     R. Hear our prayer.

In this week of prayer for Christian Unity, we seek harmony and dialogue with other Christians. Lord, give us humility and patience to walk with others on their journey.

Lord in your mercy.     R. Hear our prayer

We pray for all who are sick or troubled at this time, for all who are fearful and all without hope, may they know the presence and closeness of the Lord.

Lord, in your mercy.     R. Hear our prayer.

We pray for those who have recently died, including Marjorie Flanagan, Maura Green, Angel Guerra, Anne Moon, Carola Penruddock, Josephine Seymour, and Nina (Mphutlane-)Taole, and for all who mourn their loss.

Lord, in your mercy.     R. Hear our prayer.

About Us

In May 2009 the Parish of the Nativity of the Lord was officially inaugurated by Bishop Kieran Conry, bringing together in a single united community worshippers from the former Parishes of St Joseph’s in Redhill, Holy Family in Reigate and St Teresa of the Child Jesus in Merstham. Whilst retaining its three Churches, the new Parish is administered as a single Parish under the care of Fr Tony Bridson.  Working with Fr Tony are Deacon Tim Murrill and key groups of lay representatives from the three Churches.

Thought for the week

Christian Unity is not attained so much by agreement about some shared value, but by doing something concrete together for those who bring us closest to the Lord: the poor, for in them Jesus is present (Mt 25:40). Sharing in works of charity helps us make greater progress.
