Prayer card 2022 version

Opening Prayers

Let us pause and become aware of the presence of God

In the name of the Father 

And of the Son

And of the Holy Spirit


Prayer of Acknowledgement

Holy Spirit,

We invoke your blessing on this country and on each of us as we gather. We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past and present, and support emerging leaders. We respect the continued cultural and spiritual connection to the land and waters.

May Your Grace bless and honour our joining hands and hearts in healing one another and the land, so our lives may flow with harmony living with love and deep respect.


Prayer of the Holy Spirit

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 Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolation, Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

We pray for all people of God

Lord, we pray for all people of God, may we know your love and share it with each other. We pray for our Founders and all the Vincentians who have walked the path before us, may their spirit be our inspiration as we live out our Vincentian mission today. Be with us today as we share ourselves and our resources with your people.

Our Father

Our Father who art in heaven,

hallowed be your name

Your kingdom come.

Your 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,

and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

Let us now move into a time of spiritual reading and reflection...

Closing Prayers

As we bring our meeting to a close and prepare to move forward from this place, may we remember these words Jesus told us:

"I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you". We hold these words as a reminder of our Vincentian vocation and journey together towards holiness.

Let us pray...

We pray for all our companions with whom we have journeyed 

R. God of love hear us

We pray for all conferences, especially those with whom we are twinned

R. God of love hear us

We pray that you inspire others to hear your call for compassionate service

R. God of love hear us

We pray that all faith communities be one as you and the Father are one

R. God of love hear us

We pray for all deceased members of our Vincentian family

R. God of love hear us

We pause to offer any personal intentions...

Lord, we ask you to hear all these prayers and those that dwell within our hearts as we pray:

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.



May the blessing of Christ infuse in us a love without measure. May our actions, deliberations and decisions guide us in a revolution of tenderness modelling in our ministry inclusion, accompaniment and restoration with those we serve and those we walk with in service. And may we be blessed + Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

The Society sought the protection of Our Lady, so we have the confidence to pray...

Hail, Mary, full of grace,

the Lord is with you.

Blessed are you among women

and blessed in the fruit of your womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,

pray for us sinners,

now and at the hour of our death.
