Bless My Friends   Leave a comment

Dear Heavenly Father:
Thank You for each and every day you have blessed us here on earth.
Thank You for Your tender mercies
Thank You for giving us friends and family to share joys and sorrows with.
I ask You to bless my friends, relatives, my brothers and sisters in Christ, and those I care deeply for who are reading this right now.
Where there is joy, give them continued joy. Where there is pain or sorrow, give them your peace and mercy. Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence. Where there is need, fulfill their needs. Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings.
In your Son’s Holy Name, Amen.

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.
