Prayer for the Year of Saint Paul
God our Father, source of mercy and truth,
through the preaching of Saint Paul the Apostle,
You teach us and deepen our faith.
Grant that we may follow Saint Paul’s example and grow in holiness.
Strengthen us to continually convert
our hearts and minds to You.
Enliven us to live by the Spirit
in faith, hope, and charity.
Inspire us to hand on to others
what we have received from You.
Fortify us to pour out ourselves
and serve You with humility
Move us to unite ourselves
to the sufferings of Christ that we may
die with Him in order to rise with Him.
Help us to trust that nothing
can separate us from Your love.
Direct us to seek only the things of heaven
so that after running the race
and fighting the good fight,
we might share the crown of glory
promised to those who love You.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Saint Paul the Apostle, pray for us.
