BISHOP ZUBIK’S PRAYER FOR THE CHURCH ALIVE!
Father in heaven, We, the Church of Pittsburgh, praise You for the gift of your Son. As a people who follow in His footsteps, we pray for the grace to embrace His mission, share His love and proclaim the Gospel with courage. We thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit Who remains with us always. We commit ourselves to all we do with Your many gifts, not done for ourselves, but for You and for one another. Help us, Lord, to be your Church Alive! by living, sharing, praying as one people in Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Greene, Lawrence and Washington Counties. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, grant our prayer as we offer it to You in the Name of your Son Jesus, and with the help of our Blessed Mother, who protects us under the mantle of her garment. Hear us. Guide us. Renew us. Now, and forever, Amen.
