Official offering Prayer
Father, here I am.
I know you are always with me.
I place my heart in the Heart of your Son Jesus, who gives himself to us in the Eucharist each day.
May your Holy Spirit strengthen me to live the Gospel in everything I do and say.
For my part I give you this day–all my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings–all I am and possess.
With Mary, mother of the Church, I pray for the mission of the Church, for all Apostles of Prayer, and for the intentions of the Pope this month. Amen.
God, our Father, I offer You my day.
I offer You my prayers, thoughts, words, actions, joys and sufferings
in union with Your Son Jesus’ Heart,
who continues to offer Himself in the Eucharist
for the salvation of the world.
May the Holy Spirit, Who guided Jesus,
be my guide and my strength today
so that I may witness to Your love.
With Mary, the mother of our Lord and of the Church,
I pray especially for this month’s intentions
as proposed by the Holy Father.
Prayer for the re-creation of the Apostleship of Prayer
Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
about 175 years ago
you started a fire
in the hearts of men and women
that has spread all over the world.
They burned to tell your Good News,
to spread your gospel of love to all humanity.
Touching their hearts to the Heart of your Son,
you made them Apostles through Prayer.
You put them to serve
the mission of your Church
in the heart of the world.
Today we men and women
of the Pope’s Prayer Network
are still on fire with your love.
We still long to respond to the thirst
of our brothers and sisters throughout the world.
Take, Lord, and receive our lives,
make us docile to your Spirit.
May the worldwide mission
you have entrusted to us
be today as yesterday
a worldwide prayer network
deep into the heart of humanity.
