PRAYER FOR THE 40th Anniversary of WWME Philippines
November 18-20, 2016
Nature’s Village Resort, Talisay City
Diocese of Bacolod
we thank you for the gift of life and love,
for the gift of marriage and family.
When you created man and woman in your image and likeness,
you inscribed deep in the heart of every man and woman
a deep longing for love and communion.
In your loving providence, you give fulfillment to this deep longing for love and communion in marriage, where “man leaves father and mother and clings to his wife and the two of them become one flesh.”
We lift up to you all married couples throughout the PHILIPPINES,
that they may become incarnations of your great love for humanity.
We lift up to you all our priests throughout the world,
that they may continue to enhance and strengthen Christian marriage through loving exercise of their priestly ministry.
Bless our families as you did the Holy Family of Nazareth.
May our families truly become a Church in the home, where love and forgiveness, understanding and peace, compassion and mercy abound.
May our children grow not only in age, but also in grace and wisdom before your Presence like Jesus your son.
Bless the coming WWME 40th anniversary. May couples, priests and religious come together in the spirit of sharing and learning, in the spirit of truth and love.
Bless the host ZONE, the DIOCESE OF BACOLOD. Pour out your bountiful blessings on all couples, priests and religious as they share their time, talent and treasure to make the 40thanniversary of WWME a fruitful one.
Grant, O Heavenly Father, that we do all these to glorify your name. Send us Your Holy Spirit and set us on fire!
We ask this through Christ Our Lord.
