Join Us In Prayer
Prayer For Evangelisation
You so loved the world that you sent us your only Son,
that we might believe in him and have eternal life.
May we encounter Jesus Christ anew this day
and live the Good News with joy.
Through the power of your Holy Spirit,
help us to “go out to the whole world and proclaim”
our faith with confidence.
Give us the courage to witness to the Joy of the Gospel
by our words and actions.
Help us to become more welcoming and missionary,
so that you may be known and loved by all people.
We make this prayer through Our Lord Jesus Christ Your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever,
Prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel
Mary, Mother of Good Counsel,
obtain for us the gift of Counsel
to inflame our hearts with the desire
to spread the reign of God on earth.
Intercede for us
that we may be wise in decision-making,
courageous in difficulties
and generous in serving others.
Help us to discern and fulfill God’s will,
so that with you we may enjoy forever his presence.
"We must pray for missionaries, for the evangelizing action of the Church. Prayer is the first ‘missionary work’- the first – that every Christian can and must do, and it is also the most effective, even though this cannot be measured. Indeed, the principal agent of evangelisation is the Holy Spirit, and we are called upon to collaborate with Him."
- Pope Francis
