OCTOBER 2018 PRAYER PAGE
October’s scripture verse
Say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will rescue you from the snare of the fowler, from the destroying pestilence. Psalm 91:2-3
October’s New Requests:
-- That during this Respect Life Month, we will work fervently to advance the Gospel of Life.
-- That the Church will go forth toward those who are wounded and in need of an attentive ear, forgiveness and love.
-- For the grace this month to be able to deal patiently with others.
-- That our parish will grow in faith, hope and love through deeper devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and the holy rosary during this month of Mary.
-- That consecrated religious men and women may bestir themselves, and be present among the poor, the marginalized, and those who have no voice.
-- We pray for peace and justice for all people in our community, our country, and throughout the world.
-- We pray for an increase in vocations to religious life. We especially pray for Father John, parish seminarian Andrew Gaffney, and David Auten, our diaconate candidate. May the Holy Spirit continue to direct their minds and hearts in their service to Christ and his church.
-- That our parish will use their resources to protect and provide for the poor, the sick, the elderly, the grieving, the lonely, the hungry, the homeless, the addicted, and the unemployed.
O Lord, our God,
increase our faith, hope and charity,
and make us love what you command,
so that we may merit what you promise.
