Catechist Prayers


   Catechist Prayers

God our Father,

complete the work you have begun

at my Baptism and Confirmation

and continue to nourish with the Eucharist.

Strengthen within me the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Keep the Gifts of the Holy Spirit

active in my heart.

Strengthen within me

the spirit of Wisdom and Understanding,

the spirit of Right Judgment and Courage,

the spirit of Knowledge and Reverence.

Fill me with the spirit of Wonder and Awe

in the presence of the mystery of your love.

Teach me to guide them

To come to know You,

To live in friendship with you,

And to give witness to your Son

By lives built on faith and love.

Amen.


Opening Prayers

Holy Spirit, we ask that you enlighten our understanding, and to remove from us all darkness of sin and ignorance.  Give us a diligent and obedient spirit, quickness of apprehension, capacity of retaining, and the powerful assistance of They holy grace.  We ask this in God's name.  Amen.


Closing Prayers

Heavenly Father, pour down on our souls those graces which flow from your love.  Let our hearts be united with yours.  May your will be the rule of our desires and our actions.
