PRAYERS FOR UNITY 2012

To Our Lord Jesus Christ

 O Lord Jesus Christ,

You prayed on the night of Your Passion

That all Your disciples might be one,

As You are one in the Father,

And the Father is in You.

Grant us, Lord,

That we may find ourselves in You.

Restore and perfect in us Your image

And true likeness.

Grant us courage to reject

The spirit of indifference and mistrust.

Open the eyes of our minds and hearts

To see Your holy face in each other.

May we embrace and celebrate

This great gift of Faith

Which You have given us.

O Lord, all-perfect in Love,

Show us the way that leads to Unity;

And keep us in Your Holy Will always.

We give glory to You, Master and King,

Together with Your eternal Father

And Your most holy, good and life-giving Spirit,

Always, now and forever and ever. Amen. 

Intention

We pray for Unity 2012, that the young adults who gather may not be afraid to open their hearts to the Lord Jesus Christ, and to venture out into the wilderness according to His Gospel!

 “The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight the paths of our God.’” -Isaiah 40: 3

 “The voice said, ‘Cry out.’ So I said, ‘What shall I cry?’” – Isaiah 40: 6a

 “He will feed His flock like a shepherd and gather the lambs with His arm; and He will comfort those with young.” -Isaiah 40: 11

 “Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the elect shall be without strength. But those who wait on God shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like the eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not hunger.” Isaiah 40: 30-31
