Prayer for Mini World Youth Day
Oh God our Father! As we your sons and daughters prepare for our pilgrimage of faith, we ask you to give us the grace and courage to step forward in faith, hope and love to encounter and walk with your Son Jesus.
Lord Jesus Christ, Help us to hear your call, and to discern our vocation, so that when we meet as young people, we may support each other by sharing our faith experiences our dreams, our longings for the future. Give us the courage to answer your call to be true disciples.
Holy Spirit, we implore you, empower and transform us, so that we may show the face of Jesus to everyone we meet on our journey of life.
Mary, conceived without sin, we thank you for teaching us to express but our gratitude by saying: “The Mighty has done great things for me and holy is His Name!”
Remind us to respond in wonder and awe with Elizabeth: “How can it be, that the Mother of my Lord should come to me !
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
