The Prayer of the Faithful or Universal Prayer concludes the Liturgy of the Word. Flowing from the Word of God, the entire assembly intercedes not only for the local community, but for the whole Church and the whole world. Writing the Prayer of the Faithful is an important responsibility. It takes great care and skill to craft simple and beautiful texts that will inspire the faithful.

It provides basic and necessary background with practical examples parish staffs will need to compose their own well-written prayers.
