Heavenly Father,
pour forth your Holy Spirit to inspire me with words from Holy Scripture.

Stir in my soul the desire to renew my faith
and deepen my relationship with your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ
so that I might truly believe in and live the Good News.

Open my heart to hear the Gospel
and grant me the confidence to proclaim the Good News to others.

Pour out your Spirit, so that I might be strengthened to go forth
and witness to the Gospel in my everyday life through my words and actions.  


-Prayer from the USCCB
