Renew Prayer

Gracious God and Father,

We are your people embraced by your love.
We thank you for your presence with us
throughout all time.

Create us anew through Jesus Christ your Son,
Liberate us from all that keeps us from you.
Send your Holy Spirit, enabling us to recreate
our world and restore justice.

Heal us from every form of sin and violence.
Transform us to live your Word more profoundly.
Reconcile us so enemies become friends.
Awaken us to the sacred; nurture our relationships.
Enliven our parishes; reunite our families.

Fill us with joy to celebrate the fullness of life.
Empower us to be a community of love growing
in your likeness by the grace of Christ our Lord.
