Wednesday 21st June: Why Pray?

The Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Reflection

Why should we pray? Here is a short explanation from the 24/7 Prayer Movement which is an organisation that promotes prayer all over the world.

Prayer

In our waiting, in our praying
in our being
by our actions
and our words
by our choices
and decisions
may we make your love known.

In our tears,and our anger
by our sharing
and our sheltering
through our joy
and thanksgiving
may we make your love known.

Our Father who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy name;
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us;
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Our Lady Queen of Peace pray for us.

St Joseph pray for us

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
