Prayer for Our Church

Lord God, as a sign of your steadfast love,  in a world hardened  by sin, grant us land where we may build a visible sign of your presence in our community. Drawn together in Christ by the Spirit, bless our efforts as we seek to raise up a place worthy of your Holy Presence where our growing Catholic family may joyfully celebrate. Send forth Your Spirit of unity and generosity  that the task of building upon this land will draw us together in praise of your name.

Empower us to be a community of love even as we wait in confidence, growing in your likeness by the grace of your Son,  who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.  Amen.
