Prayer for the 2020 Province Chapter
God of mercy and compassion, You have called us and sent us to be the living images of Jesus the Good Shepherd in the midst Your flock. You have journeyed with us through dark valleys and green pastures.
As we prepare for our Province Chapter, renew and transform our hearts with Your love. Together as mission partners, both sisters and lay, make us sensitive to the power of the Spirit within and around us. Enable us to enter into the discernment process with an open mind, open heart and open will. May we accept our reality, see the world as it is, discover creative possibilities and move into the emerging future that is calling us.
Energized by Your love, impel us to find new ways forward to respond to the cry of the poor and of the Earth. Gifted with the zeal of St. John Eudes and St. Mary Euphrasia, make us passionate for mission. Empower us to face the many challenges of our times with audacity and hope. In our weakness may we find in You our strength so that our struggles will lead to transformation and bring forth new life.
