Seminarian Giuseppe here! I have taken my time to write 7 prayers of the faithful you can use during a Mass for Students. I hope this saves you some time. I did this many so there can be something that perfectly resonates with you. I should also let you know that these prayers of the faithful were crafted following the instructions of the General Instructions of the Roman Missal. Check out how we write our prayers of the Faithful here!
