Day 119: The Church’s Missionary Mandate (849-856)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we know that you have met us with your Grace. We know that you have given us your Holy Spirit. We know that you have sent your Son into this world to be our Savior. He becomes our Brother. He is our God. You have used other people in our lives to bring us this knowledge of truth. There are people in our lives who have given so much so that we can know the Truth. Today, Lord God, we ask you to give us a missionary spirit. Give us the same spirit that lived in those people who brought us the Gospel. Give us a heart for others. Give us a faithfulness and a contagious teachability. Give us availability so that we can be sent on mission. We can bring your Truth, your Word, and your Grace to a world that longs for you, even if they don’t know it. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen”
