The Bidding Prayer

After each bid, keep silence.

Dear members of God’s family:

we pray for the church throughout the world. . .

we pray for our bishop, our pastor, and all servants of the church. . .

we pray for those preparing for baptism. . .

we pray for the Jewish people, the first to hear the word of God. . .

we pray for those who do not share our faith in Jesus Christ. . .

we pray for those who do not believe in God. . .

we pray for God’s creation. . .

we pray for those who serve in public office. . .

we pray for those in any need. . .

and we pray for all afflicted by the coronavirus. . .

Finally, we pray:

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread,
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial,
and deliver us from evil,
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours,
now and forever.


Conclude with these words:

We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you.
By your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

The Three Days continues tomorrow with the Vigil of Easter
