A Prayer for Evangelization
EVER PRESENT GOD,
we give You thanks for the gift of Your Son, Jesus.
We thank You for the unity we find in Him.
We ask You to send Your Holy Spirit upon us
...that we might boldly proclaim Your love,
...that we might courageously speak Your truth,
...that we might humbly live as Jesus did,
ever faithful to You, ever joyful in Your service, ever hopeful that Your Kingdom will burst forth in this moment.
Send us valiantly forth with the Good News that in this place, in this parish, Jesus is alive, welcoming the lost and leading us all to lives of merciful compassion!
