Year of Youth Prayer

 

Come Holy Spirit of this Great Southland

Inspire our entire faith community,

As we prayerfully discern new horizons for spreading joy

in the lives and communities of the People of God.

 

Come Holy Spirit of Youth

Fill the hearts of young people with the hope and love of Jesus Christ.

Enliven our community with the creativity, energy and joy of youth.

Guide us together, as we strive to offer God’s mercy

to those who feel abandoned or outcast.

 

Come Holy Spirit of Faith

Empower our community to be courageous.

Unite your people as witnesses of love.

Walk with us, as we blaze new trails of discipleship,

Accompanying young people as we renew the Church together.

 

Come Holy Spirit of Vocation

Stir within young people an awareness of God’s call.

Reveal to us the graces of young people.

Guide us all, in finding our place and raising our voices

To build a civilization of love.

 

Amen.

Our Lady of the Southern Cross, Help of Christians, pray for us.

St Mary of the Cross MacKillop, friend of the young, pray for us.
