Prayer for Our Parish

Dear God,
I believe that you have the ability to convert everyone at St. Joseph the Worker Church and I beg you to perform miracles in our lives that we will come to love you and never want to offend you.
I beg you to let us see our sins and run to the confessional, that the lines will be out the door.
Set the hearts of our priests on fire so that they burn with the desire for the conversion of every soul in the parish.
I implore you to make St. Joseph's a beacon in our diocese, that souls will be drawn by the holiness they find here.
I ask that you blind Satan to every parishioner, that they might have the space to know and love you without temptation.
I offer myself to you completely at whatever the cost.
Amen
