Diocesan Evangelization Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ,
You have commanded us
to make disciples of all nations.
Therefore, we ask you to send your Holy Spirit,
to make us your instruments in this divine work.
Enlighten us by your Word,
and strengthen us by your Sacraments
so our minds and our hearts may be transformed.
May the manner in which we live our lives
announce the love and mercy you extend to all people.
Permit the Spirit to cause a holy zeal to rise up in us
for the work of evangelization to which you call us.
Set our hearts on fire to bring others to you
and to the Church
which you founded out of love for all.
Deepen our knowledge and understanding
of the teachings of your Church,
and guide us with your wisdom in passing on the faith.
Allow the gift of right judgment
to show us when to listen
and when to speak your Word.
Give us the courage to proclaim the Gospel
even when faced with adversity.
May we help others to live life to the full through you
and to experience the glory of your kingdom.
We entrust our evangelization efforts to the protection
of our diocesan patroness,
Mary, Our Lady of the Assumption,
as we make this prayer to you,
and the Father, and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
