This is our prayer. We have used this at every meeting since Together for the Common Good started in 2012. Please feel free to use and share. May this prayer be a blessing on you.
Glory be to the father, the son and the Holy Spirit +
Come Holy Spirit. We welcome you here in our midst.
Govern our hearts and minds, govern every aspect of our meeting.
Be in every thought and word; in every intention and motive.
Lord, we thank you for those who have been an inspiration to us.
Thank you for calling us through the Gospel to work together, for ideas and for each other.
We pray for others working for the Common Good and for those who resist it.
Bind us together across our traditions and move our heart's desire closer to the heart of your desire for us.
Lord, give us the grace do your will, and make our mission a joy.
In the love of Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
