Most gracious God, open the minds and hearts of every person in our parish, including myself. Help us to know and love each other more deeply, working together in charity as we build your kingdom.  Strengthen us to become disciples wherever we may be, bringing his light and healing to all we meet. Help us to cooperate in your plan to establish your kingdom here on earth.

Thank you for giving your son, Jesus Christ, as a model for how we are to live our lives. Help me to be Christ-centered and intentional in my thoughts, words, and actions.  Remind us, that we, no matter the stage of discipleship, can be close to Jesus, truly and physically, in the sacraments and each other.

We invite the Holy Spirit to show us the areas we need to change to become intentional disciples. Open our hearts to your desire that we become welcoming and trusting in our relationships. 

This prayer we offer to God our Father, through Christ His son, in the power of the Holy Spirit.
