PRAYER FOR "RENEW MY CHURCH"
Lord Jesus, you speak to us today,
as you spoke to holy men and women
who have gone before us.
In every age and in our own time,
you call to us and say: Renew My Church.
Pour out the gift of your Holy Spirit upon us,
and so enable us
• to hear you clearly
• to listen to each other attentively
• to imagine our future boldly
• to discern your direction wisely
• to persevere in your holy will courageously
• to stay together in charity
• to surrender our own plans readily
• to embrace the greater good
• to hand on your gifts to future generations.
May we remain in the holy company of
the Blessed Virgin Mary, the apostles, and all the saints.
May their example and presence inspire us
with patient confidence in the work of your grace.
We ask this of you
who live and reign with the Father
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.
