New Evangelization Prayer   Leave a comment

Heavenly Father, pour forth your Holy Spirit to inspire me.

Stir in my soul the desire to renew my faith and deepen my relationship with your Son,

our Lord Jesus Christ, so that I might truly believe in and live the Good News.

Open my heart to hear the Gospel and grant me the confidence to proclaim the Good News to others.

Pour out your Spirit, that I might be strengthened to go forth and witness to the Gospel in my everyday life through my words and actions.

In moments of hesitation, remind me:

If not me, then who will proclaim the Gospel?

If not now, then when will the Gospel be proclaimed?

If not the truth of the Gospel, then what shall I proclaim?

God, our Father, I pray that through the Holy Spirit I might hear the call of the New Evangelization to deepen my faith, grow in confidence to proclaim the Gospel and boldly witness to the saving grace of your Son, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Jesus, may all that is you flow into me.

May your Body and Blood be my food and drink.

May your passion and death be my strength and life.

Jesus, with you by my side enough has been given.

May the shelter I seek be the shadow of your cross.

Let me not run from the love which you offer,

but hold me safe from the forces of evil.

On each of my dyings shed your light and your love.

Keep calling to me until that day comes,

when, with your saints, I may praise you forever. Amen


Lord Jesus, Bread of Life and Covenant of Love-

Nourish us with your body and Blood

Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament –

Pray for us.

Dear Beloved God in Heaven,
Please give us a president that loves this country and everything it stands for.

Please give us a president who respects You as the one true God.

Please give us a president who will, with Your help, restore this nation to its former glory, the way You created her.

Please help us to respect what You have given to us and not take anything for granted ever again.

Please God, weaken the evil and strengthen the good, both within and without. May our eyes be opened.
In Jesus’ name, Amen
