Partakers Friday Prayers!
27 March 2015
We pray together and when Christians pray together, from different nations, different churches and different denominations – that reveals Church unity! Come! Let us pray together!
A prayer of Bonaventure
as God’s Spirit came down and rested upon you,
may the same Spirit rest upon and be within us.
Grant us the gift of understanding,
by which your precepts may enlighten our minds.
Grant us counsel, by which we may follow in your footsteps
on the path of righteousness.
O Great God,
grant us courage,
by which we may ward off the Enemy’s attacks.
O Sovereign God,
grant us knowledge,
by which we can distinguish good from evil.
O Merciful God,
grant us piety,
by which we may acquire compassionate hearts.
O Holy God,
grant us fear,
by which we may draw back from evil and submit to what is good.
O Ineffable God made known through Jesus,
grant us wisdom,
that we may taste fully the life-giving sweetness of your love.
For we ask this O God our Father,
In the power of the Holy Spirit who lives within us
Through the Son who died and rose again!
Based on a Prayer of Bonaventure 1221–1274
