Prayer

God our Father,
Through the examples of holy prophets, priests, and servants of your Church,  you have given us examples of humble, faithful service.
Help us to follow in the footsteps of these holy men and women, that, through using our gifts for your Church, we may glorify and praise your name.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. 
Amen.
