Prayer for the Week

O God, you have prepared for those who love you such good things as surpass our understanding: Pour into our hearts such love towards you, that we, loving you in all things and above all things, may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

    Lord, thank you that you shine Your light in the darkness for those you believe in Your presence. Thank you that we can see the good in the turmoil in this century of mighty change and suffering. Continue to help us trust in our Faith and share Your promises with others.

    Father, fill our hearts with love towards You, towards ourselves, and towards our neighbors. Give us the knowledge, understanding, and wisdom that we need to overcome the evil that is coming against us and to defeat the kingdom of evil. Father, thank You for the power of what Christ accomplished on the cross when he made the way for us to cleave to You and to find life because You are our life. Thank You, Father, that Your love is absolute and that Your love will not fail!
