Before you begin your prayers, pause for a few moments and reflect. Take three deep breaths and be aware that the loving presence of the Holy Spirit will help you as you continue to journey in faith.
Romans 6:4 We were indeed buried with him through baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might live in newness of life.
In the sacraments we experience the truth that God desires to touch our hearts and transform our lives with his love. These sacred acts are transforming, drawing us into the Church and giving us grace to follow God’s will. Cleansed of sin in Baptism, and filled by the Holy Spirit , we are nurtured by Jesus in His Supper, our lives change and we have a new life within us. Using ordinary elements of bread, water, and fruit of the vine, we encounter in a physical way the invisible reality of God’s grace.
(Speak to God, using this prayer or one of your own.)
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, continue your work of transformation in my life.
