Thus, there is the Prayer for Renewal which was recently passed out by the Archdiocese of New Orleans.
God our Father, Creator of all life,
and new life in Christ Jesus,
we stand before you, strengthened by faith,
with gratitude for the many blessings
you have bestowed upon our Archdiocese.
Embraced by love
in the person of your Son, Jesus Christ,
we offer deep appreciation for all that nurtures and strengthens us
in our individual and parish journeys of faith.
Give us an openness
that will enable us to undertake
the mission and ministry that you want for us
in your Church.
Through the intercession of Mary, our Mother,
send forth your Holy Spirit
to heal hearts that are broken.
Give us the courage to become all
that you have called us to be.
Make us a vibrant and evangelizing Church,
grounded in the Eucharist
and in service to one another.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
