A Prayer for Devoted Laity in the Church
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.
