Lord Jesus, you commissioned your apostles to go forth and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. You have called us all to discipleship, stir up in our hearts the desire to spread the good news of salvation to all people. Come upon us Holy Spirit, transform and empower us to be your witnesses. Mary, Queen of Evangelization, you were the first to bring Christ to the world, pray for us that we may imitate you in bringing Christ to others. Amen.
Loving God, you speak to us and nourish us through the life of this church community...
In the name of Jesus, we ask you to send your Spirit to us so that men and women among us, young and old, will respond to your call to service and leadership in the church.
We pray, especially, in our day, for those who hear your invitation to be a priest, sister, brother, or deacon.
May those who are opening their hearts and minds to your call be encouraged and strengthened through our enthusiasm in your service. Amen.
Brothers and Sisters,
We ask that you pray the Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel in your prayer meetings in defense of spiritual warfare.
Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into Hell Satan and the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins, because of Thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, Who art all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to sin no more and to avoid the near occasions of sin. Amen
