Dear Lord, give me first a Spirit of fellowship with all those who pray with me, who I cannot see. And let each of us know that we pray in the unity of Spirit, although we are all separated from one another in body. Grant this, O Father, for Jesus Christ’s sake, our only Mediator and Advocate.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight. Let your Holy Spirit guide me in my prayer and in thought, and grant me the grace to listen and hear your Word. Soften my heart, that I may be directed by your truth, and not the devices of my body and mind.
Enlighten the darkness of my mind. Give me a right faith, a firm hope and a perfect charity, so that I may always and in all things act according to Your Holy Will. In the name of Christ I ask this.
