On the calls and at the services we will be praying the following prayer together, followed by readings by Father Paul, and then a chances to speak aloud the first names, (first names only), of the people you are praying for. We suggest that you print this prayer out or copy it to your phone to use throughout the day.
your ascended Son has sent us into the world to preach the good news of your kingdom:
inspire us with your Spirit and fill our hearts with the fire of your love, that all who hear your Word
may be drawn to you,through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
