2 Peter 3:13-15


What we are waiting for is what he promised: the new heavens and new earth, the place where righteousness will be at home. So then, my friends, while you are waiting, do your best to live lives without spot or stain so that he will find you at peace. Think of our Lord’s patience as your opportunity to be saved.

Prayers and intercessions:

God’s gift was not a spirit of timidity, but the Spirit of power and love, and self-control. With complete confidence we pray:
– Father, send us your Spirit.
Praise be to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ:
in Christ you have given us every spiritual blessing.
– Father, send us your Spirit.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, Mary brought Christ into the world:
through the Church, may Christ be born again today in the hearts of men.
– Father, send us your Spirit.
Father, may your Spirit lead us forward out of solitude:
may he lead us to open the eyes of the blind, to proclaim the Word of light, to reap together the harvest of life.
– Father, send us your Spirit.
Let our striving for your kingdom not fall short through selfishness or fear:
may the universe be alive with the Spirit, and our homes be the pledge of a world redeemed.
– Father, send us your Spirit.
