Dear Lord Jesus,
We ask You to bless this group of women
who have gathered in Your Name.
Instill in us a fervent desire
to join with each other in prayer.
Open our hearts to Your grace,
that we might feel Your presence and hear You call to us,
whether in a resounding voice or a gentle whisper.
Help us to love one another as You have loved us.
To always reach out as a friend,
though we ourselves may be lonely.
To show the compassion of Christ to those seeking comfort,
though we ourselves may be weak in spirit.
To help carry someone else’s cross with our one hand
as we struggle with our own cross with the other.
To learn how to listen with our minds
but speak with our hearts.
To offer up to You our weaknesses,
so that you may work through them
to bring those seeking direction in their lives
closer to You.
Teach us to be open to Your will,
that by the intercession of our Blessed Mother,
we too can answer,
“May it be done to me according to Your Word.” (Luke 1:38)
