Prayer for Devoted Laity in the Church - by Rev. Lawrence G. Lovasik, S.V.D

O Lord, our God,
You called Your people to be Your Church.
As they gather together in Your Name,
may they love, honour, and follow Your Son
to eternal life in the Kingdom He promised.

Let their worship always be sincere,
and help them to find Your saving Love
in the Church and its Sacraments.

Fill with the Spirit of Christ
those whom You call to live
in the midst of the world and its concern.
Help them by their work on earth
to build up Your eternal Kingdom.
May they be effective witnesses
to the Truth of the Gospel
and make Your Church a living presence
in the midst of the world.

Increase the gifts You have given Your Church
that Your faithful people may continue to grow
in holiness and in imitation of Your Beloved Son.

Author: Rev. Lawrence G. Lovasik, S.V.D
