A Year of Faith Prayer

Eternal God, everlasting Father,
we lift to you adoring love and praise
for the gift of faith
by which we open ourselves
to the fiery Love of your Spirit,
poured out through the pierced Heart
of your Son, Jesus Christ.
Stir up that faith anew in us,
O Father!
Deepen our trust,
illumine our minds,
kindle our hearts
and make us worthy servants
of the reconciliation
Christ won for us,
that we may come to know
the peace of the Kingdom
where you live forever and ever.
