Please take a prayer card (available in the pews) and join with us as we pray to become a House of Prayer and House of the Poor:
Teach us how to pray.
Help us to find you in words and in silence.
Increase our awareness of your beautiful presence
so that all we say and do are centered on you.
Help us to unbolt the doors of our hearts
and throw them open wide
like the disciples did at Pentecost.
Gift us with the courage
to burst out of our narrow confines,
ablaze with new fire and courage.
Fill us with the desire
to graciously reach out, as you did,
to embrace the poor and down-trodden among us.
Teach us how to define family in a way
that is ever-more compassionate and undiscriminating.
Give us the desire to welcome the stranger and be not afraid.
Transform us to become your
House of Prayer, House of the Poor
