You so loved the world that You sent us Your only Son,
that we might believe in Him and have eternal life.
May we encounter Jesus Christ anew this day
and live the Good News with joy.
Through the power of Your Holy Spirit,
help us to “go out to the whole world and proclaim”
our faith with confidence.
Give us the courage to proclaim the Joy of the Gospel
by our words and actions.
Help our parish to become more welcoming and missionary,
so that You may be known and loved by all people.
We make this prayer though Our Lord Jesus Christ Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
One God for ever and ever,
