PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Forgive us Lord for our apathy, for our lack of courage to speak out. Forgive us when we walk past and don’t offer help. Forgive us when we get it wrong.
We confess that we are afraid – we don’t want to overcome our hidden doubts and prejudices in order to be alongside those who are different from ourselves.
We ask that you would lead us into action: give us strength to be a voice crying for justice and peace. Help us to step into another person’s shoes, or if they have no shoes then not to be afraid to take off our own, peel of our preconceptions and assumptions, uncurl and spread out our toes, and tread in their footprints.
May we be a liberating presence and offer love, compassion and whatever is need to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with our God.
Jesus, through the most pure Heart of Mary, I offer you the prayers, works, joys and sufferings of this day, in union with the Masses being offered throughout the world for all the intentions of thy Sacred Heart, I offer them especially for Archbishop William Goh and Archbishop Emeritus Nicholas Chia, for all our priests, religious sisters, brothers, seminarians and novices. I also pray for:-
Our Holy Father Pope Francis’s intention for a generous welcome to the victims of human trafficking, enforced prostitution, and violence.
Our Archbishop’s intention that as Church, we will raise up a generation of leaders who have the vision, humility, and heart to serve the needs of all people.
The world leaders, strengthen them to work for your blessings of unity and peace in the world.
The lay-apostles, may they be the reflection of your love and compassion.
Couples undergoing the Marriage Preparation Course, may they share in their life the love that your Spirit brings.
Marriages, keep their relationship faithful to their matrimonial vows and to you.
Families, may this season of Lent, bring them closer to you, in sincere repentance for their offences to you and to one another.
The youth, pour more of your life into them and fill up the empty spaces with your love.
The jobless, bless them with the gift of employment.
The aged, lonely, the depressed and those tempted to commit suicide; fill them with your loving presence through the Holy Spirit to be their light and their strength.
The sick and suffering, especially those suffering from Cancer, Aids, Dementia and their care-givers, help them to follow the example of Christ’s patience and endurance.
Prisoners, drug offenders and ex-prisoners, forgive the sins of their past and protect them from all future evil.
Those on death row, may they understand the law you have given them. May capital punishment be abolished.
The souls of our dearly departed, may they be brought to you through the gates of heaven.
