Date of Prayer: 07/19/2019

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Heavenly Father, in loving our neighbor unconditionally is Your law fulfilled. But if we continuously devour one another, are we not consumed by our lust, incapable of walking in such love?

Yet, if we belong to Christ, those devices have been crucified,because we have received the power of Your holy spirit, who bears witness in our life of Your graces: love, joy, peace, long–suffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.

In these virtues, we must walk, restoring those who have been overcome by sin.

For this purpose, Your Son ascended to Heaven's throne to bestow these healing graces upon us, Your children, allowing us to walk in the
spirit, desiring to love one another, heal one another.

Father, we know how to give good gifts to our children, but You promised these greater gifts to us, these gifts of the spirit, if we ask.

So, Father, we ask: Give us Your spirit. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
