ST. THOMAS THE APOSTLE LIFE TEEN PRAYER
Loving God, You sent your Son, Jesus, into this world to be an example to us, that we might be transformed into the image of his love. This love is not something we generate ourselves rather it comes to us through the Holy Spirit who has been given us.
We pray for youth, young adults, parents, ministers and for all members of the family of St. Thomas the Apostle Parish. Come and heal any division, transform our hearts and make them one with you. Please give us knowledge, courage and willing hearts to be true disciples. Help us to be open to learn God's will, to share God's message and to be God's people. May we know, love and serve God with authenticity and passion. Bless us with love, joy, friendship, laughter, peace, hope, faith, direction, fruitfulness and the path to holiness.
We entrust our Youth Ministry work, for, with and by young people to Saint John Paul the Great. We pray that through his intercession we may find God, find ourselves and find our place in the life and mission of the Church. With God’s grace may we more fully believe in Jesus, accept what he says and follow his Gospel message, allowing Christ’s love to conquer us! In spite of all the challenges that lie ahead, may God’s love in Jesus define us! Amen
