Prayer for 2012
COMMUNITY PRAYER 2012
Almighty Father, you are the Author of Life. You have created us in your image and likeness, and we belong to you. Help us to grow in holiness and purity, as we continue to heed your voice and hold fast to you.
Jesus our Lord, you came so that we might have life, and have it more abundantly. Grant us the grace to experience that abundant life that is lived for you. Continue to show us the way of discipleship, walking in your ways, trusting and rejoicing in you, and always ready to embrace your cross.
Holy Spirit of God, you have brought us into community, so that we might help renew the family and defend life, and bring the good news of salvation in Jesus to many others. Send us forth in your power to engage the enemy, keeping us always under the mantle of your divine protection.
Triune God, we choose life. Help us to live life, to defend life, and to promote life. Use us to build a civilization of love in the world today, so that all may experience life as you intend.
Mama Mary, you brought Life into the world. We are your children. Pray and intercede for us always, and keep us in your loving embrace.
May we all be found to be good and faithful servants, ready when our Lord Jesus returns in glory.
