By fire: The Holy Spirit still guides the youth with the gift of the Spirit. Giving us, hope to renew the face of the earth. To be channels of peace and promote unity, for in unity there is strength  

Prayer of the Youth

Lord Jesus, we stand before you as your young friends.

We desire to see you as Zacheus did;

We wish to listen to you as Mary who sat at your feet;

We seek to follow you like Peter the Apostle;

In all things we ask to belong to you like the young people in the Gospel you blessed and embraced.

Lord, we come before you with many needs;

Look into our hearts and touch us, console us, guide us, and lead us to share our lives with you.

Jesus you are our most sincere friend;

Give us the grace to trust in you always;

Teach us to pray as you prayed;

Form us to see with your eyes the suffering of young people around us;

Look upon our weaknesses, forgive us and strengthen us.

Lord Jesus, we love you;

Accept our prayer and thanksgiving as we offer ourselves to you in worship and adoration.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord
