RENEW MY CHURCH


A Prayer For “Renew My Church”

Lord Jesus, you speak to us today,

as you spoke to holy men and women
who have gone before us.
In every age and in our own time,
you call to us and say: Renew My Church.

Pour out the gift of your Holy Spirit upon us,
and so enable us
    to hear you clearly
    to listen to each other attentively
    to imagine our future boldly
    to discern your direction wisely
    to persevere in your holy will courageously
    to stay together in charity
    to surrender our own plans readily
    to embrace the greater good
    to hand on your gifts to future generations.

May we remain in the holy company of
the Blessed Virgin Mary, the apostles, and all the saints.
May their example and presence
inspire us with patient confidence
in the work of your grace.

We ask this of you who live and reign
with the Father
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God,
forever and ever.
Amen
