That by virtue of baptism, the laity, especially women, may be enabled to participate more in areas of responsibility in the Church.
With Jesus in the morning
Father, I offer you this day.
I ask for light to see the right path.
I ask for freedom from worry, fear or guilt.
I ask for wisdom and insight into how our world needs renewal.
I ask for forgiveness when necessary and for people to help me along the way.
May I know that you love me and walk the path with me.
I pray with the Pope and the Worldwide Network of Prayer that by virtue of baptism, the laity, especially women, may be enabled to participate more in areas of responsibility in the Church.
With Jesus in the night
As the light of day fades, may the ills and worries of the day fade also.
May I take time to reflect on my day with the gratitude of one who realises that life - tough and all as it is - is a gift.
I ask you to be with and protect all those I love, all those I have fallen out with, all those I work with, all my friends and all whom I meet in the course of my days.
I ask you to help me to let go of hurts and offence; forgiving and seeking forgiveness.
Be with me Lord this night as you were with me this day.
