Prayer for the Carmelite Family

Prayer for the Carmelite Family

Tender-hearted God,

renew the gift of the Holy Spirit within the Carmelite Famiy
as we seek to live following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.

Teach us, like Mary, to contemplate your wisdom.
Fill us, like Elijah, with zeal for your glory.
Inspire us, like Simon Stock, to ponder your will in times of change.
Like Teresa, John, Thérèse and Titus,

may we live always in your presence,
and make us prophets of your Kingdom.

May our lives of prayer, community, and service

be a sign to the world that God lives,
in whose presence we stand.

This grace we ask in Jesus' name.
