The VITA Prayer
Lord Jesus, we come before You just as we are,
gathered together in Your name because we want to fan into a flame,
the spark of passion You have ignited within us for Your mission to set the world on fire with the Gospel.
You have commissioned us to be heralds of the Good News in the real and digital world,
give us the grace to temper judgement with mercy,
division with dialogue, emotion with temperance,
worldliness with detachment, and relativism with Truth.
For You did not give us a spirit of timidity,
but the Spirit of power and love and self-discipline.
Grant us patience and compassion so that we can be channels of grace to each other.
May we always remain in You, and You in us, so that,
rooted in Your Word and filled by Your living water,
we may always bear fruit for your Kingdom.
Anoint us with your Holy Spirit, one in mind and Spirit.
We consecrate our work to Mary,
Star of the New Evangelisation and Mother of Mercy.
Pray for us, dear Mother.
