“Again, [amen] I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father.  For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18:19-20).

Prayer for Healing and Reconciliation for Our Nation

Elder Dianne Anderson of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish, who also serves as coordinator of Restorative Ministry / Prison Ministry in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon, was invited to share a prayer at the 2021 Remembrance Day celebration in Saskatoon. Let us join her in her prayer for healing and reconciliation in our nation:

 

Creator God, We come together at this time on a journey of healing and hope,

through reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people,

to grow together in reconciliation of past hurt and betrayal of treaty,

language, tradition and relationships. Creator God, we ask you

to be with us, to guide us, and to bless our walk

as we grow together as one nation. Amen

Pastoral Plan Priority #3 – “Embrace Your Priesthood” – Discerning God’s Call to each person

Prayer for Persecuted Christians Around the World

 

Red Wednesday will be marked this year on Wednesday, Nov 17, 2021, an event aimed at highlighting the persecution and injustice suffered by Christians, while promoting respect and tolerance between people of different religions. Currently, 327 million Christians live in a country where there is religious persecution. It is estimated that 75 percent of religiously-motivated violence around the globe is perpetrated against Christians. 

 

Lord Jesus Christ, we pray that the Church may faithfully proclaim

the message of freedom to a troubled world, and that by Your grace

and the work of the Holy Spirit, the Church will continue to transform,

heal and make new the hearts of all who hear Your message.

Saviour God, we pray for all those who suffer repression and

persecution because of their faith.

We pray that those undergoing persecution in our world

will be consoled by our prayers and reassured by our support.

We humbly ask You to bless them with Your Holy Spirit,

so that they ‘might not despair nor become despondent’

but may find strength in Your endless love,

mercy and inexhaustible compassion. Amen.
