Family Prayer Time
Prayer for Charity
Jesus, open our eyes that we may see you in all our sisters and brothers.
Open our minds that we may understand their hopes and dreams,
their sorrows and pain, their longing for you.
Open our hearts to give generously of ourselves.
Grant us wisdom to respond effectively to the needs
of your people with grace and compassion.
Give us the courage to speak your words of life,
peace, love, mercy and human solidarity.
Bless the people whom we serve,
and strengthen the staff and volunteers
who reach out to them
every day in your spirit of Charity. Amen.
