Almighty God, as we begin our
100 days of prayer together.
Let us pray for the Church
throughout the world
For its clergy, consecrated and laity,
that as we enter this new year they may be renewed in faith and hope.
Let us ask the Saints to guide us
as we contemplate their lives,
So that they inspire us to
strive for holiness.
We ask this through Christ your
Son our Lord.
