(To Be Said Whenever Possible - At Least Weekly)

O Lord God Almighty, who has called us together to be the Church of Your Son and our God, the Lord Jesus Christ, as His holy body and His bride, a royal priesthood and a holy people, pour out Your Holy Spirit upon our parish, her clergy and her people, that we may do Your holy will in every way.  Bless our parish in all of her programs and projects to fulfill that which is well-pleasing in Your sight, for the glory of Your name, the edification of Your Church, the service of all men and the salvation of our souls.  Heal every wound within the parish, overcome every difficulty and disharmony by Your gracious power and love, that we may in truth glorify Your all-holy name with one mind and one heart; Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
