Prayer for Grace

Gracious God,
You have blessed this ancient land with many gifts.

We thank you for your Grace, a time to start afresh from Christ.

You invite us to contemplate the face of Jesus your Son,
that we may experience a new wave of grace,
and that the light of Christ may burn more brightly in our lives.

Attune our hearts and minds to the presence of your Holy Spirit,
that our Church may be transformed, our relationships be healed,
and our nation grow in compassion and justice.

With the intercession of St Mary MacKillop,

and all the patrons of our houses here at Padua,
who showed us new ways of living the Gospel,
we make our prayer through Christ our Lord.

Amen
