Let us remember…that we are in the holy presence of God.
+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Holy Spirit,
Fill me with Your gift of courage as I go through this day.
When I am tempted to give up, help me to keep going.
Grant me a cheerful spirit when things don’t go my way.
And give me the courage to do whatever needs to be done.
In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us.
Live, Jesus, in our hearts – Forever!
