With class beginning tonight, my only thoughts are, “Lord, send out your Spirit!”
Here is a Catechist’s Prayer from the Finding God catechist manual that I am using:
Loving God, creator of all things, you call us to be in relationship with you and others. You are the giver of all I possess, the source of all my blessings, for which I thank and praise you. Help me to desire nothing more than to be filled with your love and grace. Thank you for calling me to be a catechist, for the opportunity to share with others what you have given to me. May all those with whom I share the gift of faith discover how you are present in all things. May they come to know you, the one true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. May the grace of the Holy Spirit guide my heart and lips, so that I may remain constant in loving and praising you. May I be a witness to the Gospel and a minister of your truth. May all my words and actions reflection your love. May all see in me the fruits of your Spirit, so that your glory may be seen in the world. Amen.
