Weekly Prayer - Your Mission of Hope

Columban Weekly Prayer

Heavenly Father, we Your followers live in an in-between world. 
We know by Faith of Your victory over sin and death 
through Your Life, Death and Resurrection. 
Yet we see the reality of evil in people being exploited, 
in land, sea and sky being polluted, 
in people brought to despair by poverty.  
We continue Your mission of Hope by our own attempts 
to be fair and caring in our day-to-day lives; 
in the struggles to bring about true peace and justice; 
in announcing to others that life has meaning 
and is fulfilled in compassion. 
By Your example of self-giving, guide us to true Love and Life. 

— By a Columban Missionary
