A Catechist’s Prayer


God our Father,
complete the work you have begun
at my Baptism and Confirmation
and continue to nourish with the Eucharist.
Strengthen within me the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Keep the Gifts of the Holy Spirit
active in my heart.

Strengthen within me
the spirit of Wisdom and Understanding,
the spirit of Right Judgment and Courage,
the spirit of Knowledge and Reverence.

Fill me with the spirit of Wonder and Awe
in the presence of the mystery of your love.

Teach me to guide them
to come to know you,
to live in friendship with you,
and to give witness to your Son
by lives built on faith and love.
Amen.
