Prayer for Parish

Christ Jesus,

You who love us and deepen in us the knowledge of Your name and Your love, open all doors and make known the way of salvation, You call us to take time and to be with You in prayer, to draw close to You and to seek Your Will.

You desire to purify our hearts and to lead us to repentance draw us together as a community and help us to open our hearts to appreciate the gift of each other.

Bless our Parish Community and all those we love. May your grace lead us to a new Pentecost in our lives to go and proclaim the Good News to all and a deeper desire to live the mission of the Church.

AMEN

Year of Grace

Jesus,
as I contemplate your face,
let me experience your great love for me.

Reveal your saving grace
and give me a grateful heart.

Heal me of my weaknesses and sin
and fill me with compassion
for others.

Gift me with the wisdom of the Spirit
and encourage me to be
a faithful witness to the Gospel.
