Prayer For Retreatants
Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
As it was in the beginning
Is now, and ever shall be,
World without end
Merciful Father, I love you. I praise you for your goodness, mercy, greatness and caring. I thank you for your wondrous creation, your just laws and your blessed Son.
Lord Jesus, I love you. I praise you for your example, healing, teaching and miracles. I thank you for your brave sacrifice for our sins and for your great gift of holy communion.
Holy Spirit, I love you. I praise you for your inspiration to the prophets and Bible authors. I thank you for being our counselor, mentor and guide.
Come Holy Spirit, Fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created,
And You shall renew the face of the earth.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit,
Did instruct the hearts of the faithful,
Grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations,
Through Christ Our Lord.
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death.
Heavenly Father, please be with them in this retreat.
Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Heavenly Father I pray that you send your Holy Spirit upon the team and retreatants and fill them with your love and glory. Thank You for allowing them to be here in Your name. In Jesus name Amen.
Jesus, you invited the apostles to come away with you to a deserted place and rest a while. Like your apostles, enable me to experience You on retreat your suffering love and tender compassion. May I come to better know myself, to draw closer to you, and to thus be of better service to my brothers and sisters in the Church. Help me to listen attentively, to ponder prayerfully, to respond generously, and to benefit from the solitude and peace. Through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Sorrows, may I and my fellow retreatants leave our retreat as deeply committed Christians, better able to follow your footsteps in all the opportunities and challenges of life. Amen.
LOVING FATHER, we pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on all participants at the Conversion Experience Retreat at CSC, that every heart be open to experience Your love personally in a powerful, life-changing way. May You bless everyone abundantly with all the graces they need for total conversion of heart. Lord, fill them with Your Spirit and love, and grant graces of forgiveness, reconciliation and healing in spirit, soul and body. May You transform every heart and mind to be renewed in Your Spirit.
O Holy Spirit, anoint and empower Msgr William Goh, and the ministering teams to be be Your effective instruments abounding in love, wisdom and discernment.
Lord, protect all Your people from the wickedness and snares of the devil, from harm and danger.
Holy Mary, our Blessed Mother, we ask for your powerful intercession for everyone at the retreat.
To You O Lord, we give glory and praise because of Your constant love and faithfulness. We make this prayer through Jesus, our Saviour and Redeemer. AMEN.
