(a prayer from Paulist Evangelization Ministries)
Loving God, create in us an ever-growing faith, with hearts open and centered in You.
Awaken within us the fire of Your Spirit, so that Your love may fill us more fully, and flow throughout our lives.
Increase within us a desire to reach out, to invite and to share, to welcome and accept.
Awaken the faith of all Your children, especially those who have grown distant from You, those ready to hear an invitation to the love You alone can bring.
Awaken us, loving God, to see the fullness of Your grace and peace. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
