Let Us Pray for the Church and the World

No worship service is complete without praying for the needs of others. This is also the ideal time to bring our own prayer needs before our fellow parishioners. When we offer our intercessory prayers, known as the prayers of the people, we remember the needs of:

  • The Church
  • The World
  • Local Concerns
  • The Sick
  • The Departed

These prayers are often read aloud by a deacon or Eucharistic Minister. Many congregations opt to have a parishioner read the prayers from the midst of the congregation. Time is always given for the people to add their own prayer requests if they like.
