A #heartbeatprayer from the Diocese of Ottawa


Our prayer for our church in the 21st Century:

  • That we may reach younger people, for inspired leaders for youth ministry, that we may be welcoming and responsive to young people, that our church might reach younger generations that they may experience the joy of knowing our Lord.
  • That programs that rejuvenate and empower new Christians, such as Cursillo and Alpha, will be supported by lay and clergy church leaders.  That re-energized leaders for these programs will come forward.
  • That we may demonstrate through our lives to those around us the live-giving value of belonging to Christ and to a Christian community. That those who have been led to believe from the world around them that faith is outmoded will come to see its immeasurable potential contribution to their lives.
