The Lay Readers' Prayer

Loving and eternal God, who through
Your Son, Jesus Christ, calls your
People and sends them forth to witness
and serve in your name, bless
each member of the Lay Readers' Association of this Diocese. Give us
grace that we, walking in the footsteps
of your Son, and being filled and
strengthened by your Holy Spirit, may
serve you and your Church as faithful
stewards in the ministry to which we are
called and, by our example, enable
others to know and love you, through
Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen
