Prayer of the Day

O God, you have brought together a diversity of peoples in the confession of your Name: Grant that all who have been born again in the waters of Baptism may be united in faith and in holiness of life; through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Pray for the gifts of the Holy Spirit to lead a holy life
For the remembrance of our baptism
For a deepened love of the Holy Communion
For the gift of love
For the grace of humility

Our Father…

The Lord almighty bless (+) us, and direct our days and our deeds in his peace.
