World Mission Sunday

Mission Prayer

Lord, our God,
help us to walk with You
on the pathway of the beatitudes
and to live out Your mission
in today’s world.

Bind us to all men and women
of our time so that together
we may bring the Good News
to the ends of the earth.

Open our hearts and our Christian communities
to the needy, the afflicted, the oppressed.
May we radiate the Living Christ
and transform our lives
in the hope of the Resurrection.

This prayer we make to You
who are the living God
now and forever.

Amen.

Prayer to Live in Union with the Trinity

Omnipotence of the Father,
help my weakness
and save me from the depths of misery.

Wisdom of the Son,
direct all my thoughts, words, and deeds.

Love of the Holy Spirit,
be the source
of all the activity of my mind,
that it may be conformed to the Divine Will.
Amen.
