A #heartbeatprayer from the Diocese of Ottawa

We pray that we can realize our potential to be a church that matters in the lives of the wider community and the world.

We pray that our church can adapt to the world, stay relevant so that is it can thrive and that we learn to embrace change rather than avoid it.

We pray that the Spirit embolden us to see ourselves as the hands of God and act, rather than simply pray and sit back – there needs to be doing involved in being church!

We pray that we continue to be engaged in life giving ministries and that we can translate the traditions, symbols and liturgy to share richness of our spiritual tradition with today’s people.

Amen
