My friends, several of you asked me to share the prayer we used at the end of mass today. It is included below. Also included is a reminder of the practical goals we as a Catholic Parish have for this week.
1st- Pray. Spend a minimum of 15 min in silent prayer each day. No phone, no distractions. Give God a chance. You cannot give what you do not have. God wants a real living relationship with you.
2nd- Don’t let the sun go down before living a Holy Moment. Intend what God intends and then to the best of your knowledge and ability, DO IT.
Life goal: Bring 12 people to faith in Jesus Christ before you die.
Lord, Here I am. I trust that you have an incredible plan for me. Transform me. Transform my life. Everything is on the table. Take what you want to take and give what you want to give. I make myself 100 percent available to you today. Transform me into the person you created me to be, so I can live the life you envisioned for me at the beginning of time. I hold nothing back. I am 100 percent available. Lead me, challenge me, and open my eyes to all your possibilities. Show me what it is you want me to do, and I will do it. Amen.
You and yours are in my prayers, Fr. Eric
