Prayer for Sacramental Candidates
Lord, You send out Your Spirit to
touch the hearts of all people, so
that they may believe in
You and in Jesus whom You sent.
Look kindly on all candidates for the sacraments of
Reconciliation, Communion, and Confirmation
as they listen to Your voice.
Open their hearts to Your Spirit and bring to fulfilment
the good work that You have begun in them.
As we prepare these children, make each of us an
instrument of Your love.
Teach us to appreciate what is holy in
others, and to be patient
with what we do not understand.
Deepen our faith in the Gospel
and help us to pass it on by our
example. We pray that You will continue
to guide us and sustain us.
Through Christ our Lord, Amen.
