Examples:

1+ For the ability to remain close to ones faith, family and traditions as Grandpa and Grandma Hensgens raised-up their children in the way they should go so when they are older they will not depart from those ways, the prayer of every parent!...We pray to the LordLord, hear our prayer.

 

2+ In gratefulness and reverence we hold dear those who have gone before and who light our path, our ancestors; those you are here, the Greater Hensgens Family, and for those who will come after, our descendants, who will pray for us until the Grand Reunion commencing eternal life in The Light…We pray…

 

3+ We pray for the special intentions of our Holy Father, bishops, priests, deacons, religious and the laity, to live every day faithfully and with the awareness that eternal life in the Light is made possible by fervently handing-up in prayer the obstacles that impede our vocation so as to love and act in His image and likeness…we pray…

 

4+ For the intentions known only in the hearts of those present who are in need of grace, grit and determination to live a life of splendid courage, trust and faithfulness; for to know Him, is to love Him, is to serve Him in this life… we pray…

 

5+ For the deceased members of the Hensgens-Reiners Family as they all enjoy the fullness of life in God’s presence, we pray…

 

6+ For the living members of the Hensgens-Reiners Family that they continue to spread the good news in their parishes and civic communities as they model family values emulated by our ancestors, we pray…

 

7+ For perseverance and an increase in religious vocations to the priesthood and religious life…we pray…

 

8+ For the personal intentions of all here present in the silence of our hearts/pause…we pray…
