Our Current Prayer
As Catholics, we recognize that prayer is of the utmost importance. In our mission to act with the Church to help the poor overseas, we begin with prayer.
When Tears are Our Prayers
Lord and Father of all,
We ask with the apostles,
Teach us to pray.
In our prayers, teach us to listen.
In times of stress, let our moaning
and our tears come to you as prayers.
Let us walk without fear but with great compassion
in those times of seemingly intractable conflict.
Deliver us from despair
Help us to seek your face.
Strengthen us to do your will.
Open our hearts and hands
to receive your blessings,
to be blessings to others,
to stand in solidarity with all your children,
especially those who are overwhelmedby turmoil and great loss.
