Spiritual Sincerity – Parish intercessions

Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart.”

Each Sunday during our liturgy we pause to pray for all who have requested prayer, for the sick, the dying, the unemployed, of Muslims and Christians and Hindus, it doesn’t matter how someone journeys to God, prayer is a universal tongue.

We pray for whoever has asked for prayer, also for those we desire to pray for; for those we know and are related to, for others  known to us and for those overseas.

We know that through our Lord Jesus the Father hears all these prayers and has answered some of them as we are very quick to hear and to give thanks.

Does the constant repetition of their names become tedious and insincere or does it make a litany that the holy Spirit may take to heaven on our behalf?
