Intercession (Form IV)

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Proper: First Part - The Holy Eucharist - Rite One - The Prayers of the People

The Deacon or other minister sings or says:

In peace, let us pray to the Lord, saying, "Lord, have mercy."

The People kneel. The Deacon or other minister continues:

For the holy Catholic Church, that in faithful witness it may preach the Gospel to the ends of the earth, we pray to thee, O Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

For  , our Pope, for  , our bishop, for all bishops, priests, and deacons, and for all the holy people of God, we pray to thee, O Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

For all who fear God and believe in thee, Lord Christ, that our divisions may cease, and that all may be one as thou and the Father are one, we pray to thee, O Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

For those who do not yet believe, and for those who have lost their faith, that they may receive the light of the Gospel, we pray to thee, O Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

For the peace of the world: That respect and forbearance may grow among the nations and peoples, we pray to thee, O Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

For all children, born and unborn, that they may be protected from all evil and come to know the joy of thy creation, we pray to thee, O Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

For the poor, the persecuted, the sick, and all who suffer; for refugees, prisoners, and all who are in danger; that they may be relieved and protected, we pray to thee, O Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

For all who have commended themselves to our prayers; [for the special intentions of  , for whom we offer this Mass], for our families, friends, and neighbors; that being freed from anxiety, they may live in joy, peace, and health, we pray to thee, O Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

For [  and for] all who have died in the communion of thy Church, and those whose faith is known to thee alone, that, with all the saints, they may have rest in that place where there is no pain or grief, but life eternal, we pray to thee, O Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

Rejoicing in the fellowship of the Blessed Virgin Mary, [of Saint  ], and of all the saints, let us commend ourselves and one another, and all our life to Christ our God.
To thee, O Lord our God.

The Celebrant concludes:

O God, whose days are without end, and whose mercies cannot be numbered: Make us, we beseech thee, deeply sensible of the shortness and uncertainty of human life; and let thy Holy Spirit lead us in holiness and righteousness all our days: that, when we shall have served thee in our generation, we may be gathered unto our fathers, having the testimony of a good conscience; in the communion of the Catholic Church; in the confidence of a certain faith; in the comfort of a reasonable, religious, and holy hope; in favor with thee our God, and in perfect charity with the world; all of which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Mass continues with the Penitential Rite.
