Today is the feast of St. Lawrence, deacon and martyr. Please offer prayers for me and my fellow deacons on the feast of our patron!
The following is the prayer I began my day with today, asking for the intercession of St. Lawrence:
St. Lawrence, who in your youth suffered and died for the faith, hear my prayers. Obtain for me deep faith, strong hope, a sincere love of God and neighbor, and humble obedience.
Inspire me to come to the aid of the poor, the needy, the sick, and the afflicted. Lead me in the path of conversion. May God’s Kingdom spread far and wide on earth.
Intercede for my prayers for today: Continued healing for the boys involved in the June 30 accident, a smooth and productive start to the school year, for the homeless, and for a personal intention I hold in the silence of my heart.
Finally, grant that I live as a worthy person of God.
