Father, I trust in you and your promise of abiding love and protection everyday. Help me and my parish community to become a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, so that we may declare the wonderful deeds of him who called us out of darkness into his marvellous light.
Father, help me with your Holy Spirit so as to bring to the world the kindness and justice that you want for humanity. Assist me in doing your will as you helped the prophet Micah to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with my God.
Father through the power of your Son and Holy Spirit give me the courage to change so as to become the person you want me to be. Help me to put all my trust in you and never let me be separated from you.
I make this prayer through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen.
